On December 18, 2020, the information and analytical agency FINAM held an online conference dedicated to the socio-political results in Russia in 2020. The conference was attended by experts – representatives of business and the academic community.
The key questions during the discussion were: what political events in Russia and the world will be remembered for the outgoing year? How will the confrontation between Russia and the West develop in 2021? What signals did Putin give to society at the press conference? How effectively did the authorities deal with the crisis this year? What will happen to the economy in the coming year? Population incomes have been declining for several years in a row – will discontent grow in the country, and can this result in some kind of protest movement?
