MOSCOW, 10 Aug — RIA Novosti.

Fedorov recalled the “revolution of rising expectations”, and that “revolutionary sentiments do not appear in a crisis situation, and in a situation when the crisis is over and getting better, and at this point, the people stop suffering and start to demand”.
“The desire of the majority for change does not contradict the desire for stability and does not mean any revolutionary sentiments. Rather, we can talk about the requirement of stable change for the better, growth-oriented well-being”, — said Gryzlov released by the user polls cut sentiments of Russian citizens.
In his words, “the results of the opinion polls is an important signal to those who intend to propose and promote socio-economic measures, forcing people to tighten their belts.”

No other steps or measures with a known questionable social effect today do not work, because the citizens of Russia, they in no way don’t deserve,” concluded Gryzlov.
