Putin is a deciding factor. Average russian boomer will follow him because alegedly life is much better than it was 20 years ago. Deciding point will be next election cycle I guess. He has to decide if we're going to be a full on dictatorship or there actually will be elections held. Problem with both of those nobody really wants a dictatorship or we would vote for fucktards like zhirik already and there is no other strong personality in power right now so we're kinda fucked. If we can get out of our political crisis than we will survive, if not than you better find another place to live.
