Most Russians (53%) believe that Chechnya will only return to normal life in the distant future. This was the result of a national survey carried out by ROMIR Monitoring. 18% of respondents said they are convinced that positive changes in Chechnya will only come about in 6-10 years while 14% say it will take just 3-5 years. Interestingly, 6% of respondents claim that things will return to normal in the republic within the space of the next year.
The most pessimistic respondents tended to be people with a high income and higher education as well as managers and servicemen. Also, 62% of respondents disapprove of the federal administration in Chechnya while 31% believe the central government followed the correct course in its policy on Chechnya.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
