Values

European Russia. How and where do the basic values of Russians change?

Under the European Russia project we talk to experts about values and understanding of these values shared by the Russian and the European nations. Vladimir Magun, Head, Laboratory of comparative studies of mass mentality, Higher School of Economics, Head, Personality studies department, Sociology Institute, Federal Scientific Center for Sociological Studies, Russian Academy of Science, told us about the values, which Russia lacks to boost its economic growth and why conservative u-turn and public rhetoric, which puts state interests above the personal ones are misaligned with value-affecting changes that happened 10-15 years ago.
