Most of them isn't coordinated by the authorities, and have arrested several organizers for couple of days till their beginning. Alexei Navalny also leaves 30 days of arrest, but urges to oppose reform, calling it "the terrible act of corruption". journalists and sociologists have exorcized

After actions to the anti-corruption agenda in 2017 about so-called school students on the meetings supporting Navalny. They not only hung on lamps, watching protests at Pushkin Square, but also have appeared among detainees. So, after the procession "He to us not the tsar" in offices of police there were more than 220 teenagers. Whether will be interested they a pension subject the same as corruption? About this DW has talked to the Russian sociologists studying protest moods at youth. As teenagers react to raising the retirement age After in Russia announced raising the retirement age, there have taken place some meetings on this subject with participation of teenagers.

pension In the posters as something absolutely far for them, almost fantastic. "The youth calculated in what year she will retire - with clear implication that such future can not come", - Titkov specifies. All codes of youth culture are used: from memes "A mouse to krodetsya" and "Is spent", to quotes from the Cyd and Nancey song and Zemfira's comments on Buckwheat and Monetochke.
