Speaker: Andrei Kolesnikov
Discussant: Stefan Meister
Chair: Gwendolyn Sasse

The Carnegie Moscow Center teamed up with Russia’s independent Levada Center to conduct an all Russian opinion poll to take stock of public support for reform. The results paint a picture of a country where hope for change and a concrete understanding of reform seldom coexist. In view of the upcoming presidential elections, Andrei Kolesnikov presents the key findings of the study and discusses attitudes towards change in Russia with Stefan Meister, head of the Robert Bosch Center for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia (DGAP).
