The Most Memorable December Event

The most memorable December’s event for the Russians was the fall in the rouble’s exchange rate.

      This is evidenced by the results of the poll by “"Levada-Centre” published on the website of the organization. The weakening of the national currency was remembered by 62 percent of respondents.

      The second line was taken by the annual press conference of the Russian President Vladimir Putin: 33 percent of respondents recalled it. The third position went to decline in oil prices (28 percent). Answering the question “Which events of the last four weeks are most memorable for you?” the respondents listed even earlier events. 25 percent mentioned the annexation of the Crimea to Russia, 17 percent - the imposition of anti-Russian sanctions, 16 percent - the change in the government and the presidential elections in Ukraine.

      The list also included: humanitarian convoys to Ukraine (16 percent), Putin’s visit to Turkey, the refusal from construction of the gas pipeline “South Stream” (11 percent), Ebola epidemic in Africa (10 percent), militants’ attack on the Publishing House in Grozny (9 percent), the terrorist attack in Sydney (3 percent) and the Russian premiere of the film “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” (2 percent).
