MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. A social group that can be called Putin Generation has emerged in Russia over the last 15 years, Center of Strategic Communications director Dmitry Abzalov told reporters at a TASS news briefing, presenting a report chronicling “Fifteen Years of Putin, Beginning of a New Era”.

“A whole generation has formed with various attitudes toward the authorities, but formed against the background of the presence of the authorities. We call it ‘Putin Generation’,” Abzalov said.

"The generation is not marked only by a positive or negative attitude to authorities. It is a social group, a social cluster realised in the past 15 years, “ Abzalov said, adding that it comprised all social and political groups formed over that period.

This cluster is politically, publicly and economically active, spanning up to 50% of the middle class and identifying itself as the Putin Generation, the speaker added.
