Sociale onrust ligt op de loer in Rusland

Sociale onrust ligt op de loer in RuslandRusland verkeert in een economische crisis. Nu de olieprijs laag is, krijgt Rusland de begroting niet sluitend. En daarnaast zijn er ook de westerse sancties die pijn doen; vanwege Ruslands annexatie van de Krim mogen westerse bedrijven en banken geen zaken meer doen met Rusland. En dat doet pijn. Wat betekent dit voor de gewone Rus en de positie van President Poetin? De Russische regering wentelt de economische problematiek af op het eigen volk zegt Sijbren de Jong in gesprek met Een Vandaag.
