MOSCOW, April 8. /TASS/. "Ensuring stability rather than carrying out reforms," a majority of respondents said during a public opinion conducted by the Public Opinion Fund (FOM) with the aim to find out what the population thought about the main task of the Russian authorities.
A total of 21% of respondents said that making radical reforms was the most important task now; 43 % believe that the Russian authorities have been ensuring stability, but 25% said that the authorities have concentrated on effective reforms; 32 % were undecided.
A presumption that stability has been recently ensured in Russia was confirmed by 31% of the population polled; but 57 % challenged the idea, saying stability did not exist in Russia yet. Twelve percent were undecided.
An idea that Russia has plunged into an epoch of stagnation was voiced by 34% of the respondents, but half of them unanimously declared that there was no stagnation in this country which had been developing. Around 16% have denied the presumption of both stagnation and development.
Much fewer citizens now believe in stability in the country, while in June 2013 the number of respondents who said that Russia had entered a period of stability was 41% against 49% who disagreed.
The FOM pollster interviewed 1,500 respondents in 100 settlements in 43 regions of the Russian Federation on March 28-29.
