MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/. Every fourth Russian thinks that "everything is alright" in their lives and hard times have passed, according to a poll published by the Russia Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM) on Tuesday.
"The index of social attitudes that demonstrate how Russians assess their lives at the moment, stood at 69-71 points (at the range from -100 to 100) from February to April. At the same time, the number of very positive answers ("good" and "great") grew in the last month (from 22% to 28%). A year ago, Russians assessed the situation a bit better (the indicator stood at 76 points) while the index was lower in the same periods in 2010-2014 than in April this year," WCIOM said.
Optimism about the future of the country has been growing for the last two months. "The index of social expectations already added 11 points from February to April… A total of 19% of respondents say that hard times have passed. Every fifth respondent thinks that we are going through them now, and every other respondent (51%) says they are still ahead," the poll noted.
A total of 1,600 people from 130 settlements in 46 Russian regions were polled by WCIOM on April 23-24. Statistical error does not exceed 3.5%.
