Crimea and Sevastopol were among the regions of Russia with the most adverse political situation in 2016. This is stated in a report of experts of the Committee for Civil Initiatives of Alexey Kudrin.
Professor Nikolay Petrov, Assistant Professor Alexey Titkov and political scientist Alexander Kynev are the authors of the report.
The study regions were assessed by the level of political competition (by the number of parties, in addition to the United Russia, actively participated in the elections to the State Duma), by the number of public protests and the level of socio-economic risks.
According to the authors of the study, Crimea and Sevastopol are at the risk zone due to the next factors: poor socio-economic situation, poor political system and a large number of public protests.
The Yamalo-Nenets, the Chukchi, the Nenets and the Khanty-Mansiysk Districts, as well as the Jewish Autonomous Region and St. Petersburg are called disadvantaged by the experts in addition to Crimea and Sevastopol.
Adygeya, the Republic of Bashkortostan and Dagestan are the most successful regions of the Russian Federation.
