Boris Titov, ombudsman for business rights under the President of Russia, revealed factors that hinder the development of the country. His words are quoted by Kommersant.
According to him, one of the problems is that the Russians want to “sit all day on the rubble, like in the East,” and at the same time live well, like in the West.
In addition, the Ombudsman reflected on other wishes of citizens. “And freedom, and everything for all the decisive ruler. And education, and patriarchal ignorance. We want to develop business initiative, but we hate the rich, ”Titov said.
He also added that the country’s path is “covered with rakes,” while other countries have chosen a different path. “And the whole civilized world chose another. Development based on the initiative and activity of millions, the human values of progress – and compassion for those who cannot achieve success on their own. They call it Erhard’s “capitalism for all” or Roosevelt’s “capitalism with a human face,” Titov said.
In September, Titov said that Russian pensioners are capable of solving the problem of a shortage of foreign labor. The Business Ombudsman noted that older people want to work, but they do not, since official employment will deprive them of their pension supplements. He called the resumption of the indexation of pensions for working pensioners a way out of the situation.
