Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev believes that Russia has exhausted the limit of revolutions in the twentieth century. He declared it, speaking at an economic forum “United Russia” in Magnitogorsk. The broadcast of the event led channel “Russia 24”.
“Businessmen gathered here, the people who are engaged in the economy, people are rational, so there is nothing verhneuralskogo because the revolution we do not need, we have a limit already exhausted in the last century”, — he said (quoted by “Interfax”).
The head of government noted that also in the proposals there is nothing populist, and “United Russia, “despite the difficult period,” should not promise what cannot be realized. “We remember what promises were heard in the 1990-ies and that this is done — almost anything,” he concluded.
In April 2016, speaking at the media forum of the Russian popular front (onf) in St. Petersburg, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the result of the work of journalists should not become a “fourth revolution”. He reminded that St. Petersburg is called the “city of three revolutions”.
“I hope that the results of your efforts will not be the fourth revolution, but rather working actively, honestly, openly, you will contribute to the natural, proper, fair balance of interests in our society,” he said.
