Abstract

The article analyzes the socio-political views of Russian citizens about the future of the Russian state and Russian society. Analyzing the dynamic data series of the monitoring How do you Live, Russia? and its last wave of NovemberDecember 2020, the authors consider the changes in mass consciousness in terms of assessing the effectiveness of the governments efforts to ensure the most important rights, freedoms and norms of the social state and the democratic regime, which manifests itself in the attitude to the existing political system and affects the level of trust in the government, where the executive power traditionally leads. Identifying the expectations of Russian citizens about the possible development of the country in the political, economic and cultural spheres, the authors conclude that the level of socio-political optimism allows one to describe the existing political system as fairly stable, on the one hand, witha high level of legitimation, on the other with a high level of alienation of citizens from power.
