Russia collapsed in the annual democracy ranking

Россия рухнула в ежегодном рейтинге демократии

Russia in the annual ranking of the democracy won on the basis of 2018, only 144 out of 167-mi and included in the list of authoritarian countries. The decline was nine points: in 2017 Russia was at 135.

Positions collapsed due to a sharp (from 4.41 to 3.24) a decrease in the index of civil liberties, and the worst rating of Russia (1,79) in terms of “a functioning state”. Worse than Russia, judging by the rating, the situation in Syria, North Korea, Iran, Bahrain and similar States. Rating every year is the Economist Intelligence Unit (analytical division of British magazine the Economist).

The leader of the rating is again Norway, outsider North Korea. Strongly “sagged” in Nicaragua and Venezuela, as well as Italy and Turkey. Improve the rating authors saw in Armenia and Macedonia.
