The All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIOM) presented data from a survey that Russians would ask Santa Claus as a gift that they would like to find under the tree.
Most of the votes received health, which the respondents wanted for themselves, relatives and all other people – this was the answer of 29% of the participants.
11% each chose the end of the pandemic, the lifting of restrictions and the coronavirus vaccine.
8% each would ask Santa Claus to raise the standard of living, increase the size of the pension and for peace in the world.
Also, the top eight New Year wishes of adult participants in the study included material well-being (7%), decent work and career growth (6%).
