According to the Center of economic and political reforms, in this city in 2018 there have taken place most of all actions. The protest activity in Moscow and Moscow area, in Rostov, Saratov, Orenburg, Chelyabinsk and some other areas is also high. Least of all protests in the Tver region, Chechnya, Adygea, Ingushetia, on Chukotka and in a number of the remote regions.

of All in a year has passed 2,5 thousand protest actions in Russia, is one and a half times more, than a year ago. About a half has been connected with pension reform. Also protesters were dissatisfied with regional policy, ecology, a part of demonstrations has fallen on defrauded investors. More than a third of actions was organized by the CPRF, the tenth part — Alexei Navalny, about 5% — labor unions.

Why the leader of the protest list became St. Petersburg? The head of the Center of economic and political reforms Nikolay Mironov argues: — There was it, think because the city, first, has such mentality historically. There people just more often come to mass actions. Secondly, some bans which were in Moscow didn't work. In St. Petersburg activists public more radical, strive to carry out all the same a mass action or to achieve permission. In general in the city higher degree of a protestnost has appeared.

Collisions between them including pour out also on the street. — In regions everything good or after all it with something another is connected with low protest activity? — A lot of things simply depend on mentality of the population: as far as he is conservative, how quiet as far as it is passive in relation to that perspective which is. Plus existence after all organizational links. That is it or city activism, strong party offices, strong offices of opposition. When all this is, protests become more. In general a perspective, of course, same in the country. According to Nikolay Mironov, now the number of protests against pension reform has sharply decreased.
