The liberal policy, the blocking of economic development, the destruction of the social sphere, conducted by the government of Medvedev and the Central Bank of Nabiullina, only aggravate the situation. According to open data, half of Russians have no savings from the word at all. And from the half that they supposedly have, 70% will not live on their savings for more than a month. Thus, the real savings, which makes sense to talk about, are today only for 15% of the people.
Eight percent of Russians are beggars. They do not have enough money for food. 30% enough money for food, but not enough for clothes. Another 40% of Russians have enough money for food and clothing, but the purchase of household appliances and other durable goods is a problem.
