I remember the horror of the first days of October 1993. When the tanks shooting at the White House and explosions on the walls of the Supreme Council appeared on TV screens, there was a feeling that all this was a film about a war: so much conscious could not take it as an event happening in your country after all these loud slogans about human rights, about pluralism of opinions, about freedom to express their opinions openly. And the author is right: since then, little has changed in the behavior of our government. Economically, we have strengthened by eliminating firms operating under the PSA, and the money began to flow into the budget. The war in Chechnya was over, the "parade of sovereignties" ended, which really threatened the collapse of Russia. But after all, the country's economic policy has remained completely the same: raw materials and, once again, raw materials. Mizer of new jobs, unemployment among young people, not a growing level of well-being of the overwhelming number of citizens of the country with a huge increase in the accounts of the latter-day oligarchs, which replaced the ones removed from power and consisting of Putin’s friends.The scandalous pension reform, the already announced increase in utility tariffs, the rise in prices due to the increase in VAT, the continuing rise in gasoline prices, etc. When and how will all this end?
