40% of Russians do not have enough money for food and clothing ...


About 10% of Russians do not have enough money even for food, and 29% - barely enough money for clothes, follows from the last VTsIOM survey, which is owned by the state. At first, I thought, apparently everyone was really impoverished, but there is onebut...
According to the survey, only 39% of respondents were in the category of poor citizens. This is the maximum figure for the last eight years, this total share was only higher in May 2009 (41%). The day before, during her speech at a meeting of the Federation Council, the head of the Accounts Chamber Tatyana Golikova said that in the first quarter of 2017, the number of citizens who are below the poverty line is 15%, that is 22 million. This is more than 2 million than the annual figures for 2016.
This is one side of the coin, the other says that people have money and they spend it on ... cars. So the Russians increased spending on the purchase of foreign cars and in the first five months of 2017 they gave almost 650 billion rubles for foreign cars, which is 8% more than the same period last year, according to the analytical agency Avtostat.Moreover, the weighted average price of a new passenger car in Russia last year grew by 15% and amounted to almost 1.4 million rubles! Most of all, the Japanese Toyota looked at the citizens of Russia. The second place went to the Korean KIA, the third place went to the German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz.
