These data are presented in the study holding "Romir". According to its results, 74% of the country's citizens consider ruble weakening a problem for the country. In addition, 65% call this a personal problem. And only 35% believe that this factor does not pose any difficulties for them personally.
The study showed that the older the Russians, the less important for them are currency fluctuations. If in the age group from 18 to 34 the majority of respondents chose the answer “Yes”, 78% of the respondents were almost equally divided in the group over 60: 53% said that this problem concerns them personally, but 47% rejected the statement. “At the same time, the share of those who consider the ruble depreciation to be a problem not only for themselves, but also for the state, was significantly higher. 74% of Russians answered affirmatively to this question. Only 26% chose the No option, Romir analysts say ".
Just as with the answer to the previous question, young respondents are more concerned about the decline in the ruble exchange rate as a problem of national importance. In the age group 18-24 years old, "Yes" 82% answered this question, in the group from 25 to 34 years old - 81%.
In the whole country, more often than others, an affirmative answer was given in the Urals Federal District - 84%, less often - in the North-West: only 63% of respondents considered the ruble to fall there as a problem for the state.
“Quite often, one can hear the thesis that if you make money in rubles and pay in national currency, then you should not be afraid of fluctuations in the exchange rate. The survey refutes this statement. Two thirds of the population are worried and are watching the situation, and even less concerned than for the country as a whole, "said Andrei Milekhin, president of the Romir research holding.
At the same time, less than a third of respondents believe that the authorities are doing enough to keep the ruble rate stable and prevent its sharp fluctuations. This was stated by 29% of respondents, 71% said that efforts could have been made even more. Government measures to support the ruble are considered sufficient only by 22% of citizens aged 18 to 45 years. On the contrary, among those over 60, 40% answered in the affirmative to this question.
More than 1,400 people over 18 years old from all federal districts took part in the IVR survey of the Romir holding. IVR (Interactive Voice Response) is a voice messaging system used in a telephone interview for automated interaction with a respondent. The respondent fills out a questionnaire without an operator, the answers are entered by pressing the keys on the telephone keypad. The sample represents the urban population of Russia.
On September 5, it became known that the total amount of funds allocated by the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation for the purchase of foreign currency in the framework of the budget rule in the period from September 7 to October 4 will amount to 426.9 billion rubles. The volume will be a record, the previous largest volume of purchases was in the period from August 7 to September 6 - 383.2 billion rubles (16.7 billion rubles a day). Earlier, the Bank of Russia announced its decision not to buy currency from August 23 until the end of September to increase the predictability of the actions of the monetary authorities and reduce the volatility of financial markets.
Natalya Smirnova (Yekaterinburg), head of the Regional Advisory and Methodological Center of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation on Improving Financial Literacy in the Sverdlovsk Region, shares her recommendations on how to solve the problem of ruble weakening on a personal level:whatever sphere it concerns: the fall of the ruble, pension legislation, and so on. But at the same time, we don’t want to take responsibility for our well-being. <...>
According to the Romira study, 65% of Russians consider the weakening of the ruble to be a problem. If there is such a problem, then it should be solved, not only at the state level (the government without us is engaged in this), but at the level of its own household. And help us in this personal financial planning.
My recommendations will be simple and well known to all - diversification of assets. Do not store all in one currency. If your personal finances depend on the dollar or in the near future you have to leave or buy for a currency, then stock up with dollars or another currency (depending on what currency the expenses will be in) more. "
Elena Kirikutsa (Engels), Candidate of Economic Sciences, teacher of special disciplines at the Engels Polytechnic School of the Engels Polytechnic, evaluates the results of the survey. decision making for both economic agents and for the population and the government as a whole.
There is also a share of economic agents that, in order to save savings, increase foreign exchange savings, protecting themselves from uncertainty, which cannot contribute to the strengthening of the ruble. It can be stated that the habit of focusing on the ruble exchange rate as a certain indicator of stability gives the population a reason to reduce consumption, and entrepreneurs - investment. <...> I believe that the stable ruble rather than strong is important to Russia. "
Well, something like this.
