The current public sentiments are developing in a dangerous direction, which the contemporary Russian authorities have to take into account, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said in “The Meaning of the Game” broadcast published on the organization’s channel on July 7.
Kurginyan noted that the authorities have every reason “not to be really worried over the current public sentiments.”
He added that these sentiments are quite stagnant, inconsistent and, in a sense, unengaged.
“The authorities are making a fundamental mistake when they think that these sentiments have no dangerous path of development. Yes, in their current state they are relatively safe. But only temporary staff can confine themselves to this conclusion,” the political scientist said.
The analyst pointed out that the current Russian authorities “in no way consider themselves to be temporary staff.”
Sergey Kurginyan urges not to become fixated on pragmatically assessing the voting results on the constitutional amendments, but to consider the historical experience, which demonstrates that transient political triumphs can sometimes precede serious losses.
Indeed, the patriotic majority, which supported the amendments to the Constitution, has become significantly annoyed not only with the pension reform, but also with the inconsistent policies during the coronavirus quarantine.
