Krasnodar, 29 March – Yug Times. Gennadi Podlesny, PhD, director of the Centre for Applied Sociology and Political Science, reviews the results of the Presidential campaign and makes a forecast about the development of the present situation.

Q.: Even a most loyal citizen would tell you that there are lots of problems in the country that remain relevant even if the authorities are trying to resolve them. It would really take us a lot of time just to enumerate them, so we are not going to do it now. But still - why did most Russians give their votes to Vladimir Putin? Didn’t they see any other alternative?

A.: To the regret of millions of Russian people, Vladimir Putin is not a magician and he can’t resolve all existing difficulties, including the thorniest one - the problem of social inequality. But President understands what must be done to resolve these problems, and he is prepared to resolve them together with the citizens. Besides, it is indeed evident that there is no alternative to Vladimir Putin in this country.

Q.: Before the election day, many thought that [the Communist candidate Pavel] Grudinin is a highly promising candidate as a businessman-communist, but as a result he failed. Throughout their history, the Communists had never had such a low number of votes. Why did it happen?

A.: The very image of a ‘businessman-communist’ proved extremely lame from all viewpoints. As a matter of fact, he turned to be neither businessman nor communist - just a plain ‘new Russian’ that had in the 1990s managed to convert his position of state farm director into money.

Q.: The so-called ‘May decrees’ were an afterword of the previous Presidential campaign in 2012, for they determined the course of Russia’s socio-economic progress for the six-year period. In your opinion, can we expect any policy-making statements this time?

A.: It’s too early to speak about that. The official day of Putin’s inauguration has not yet been announced, although I think it would take place on May 7. It means that we may get a new edition of the ‘May decrees’.
