As we see from Table 21, about 60% of the respondents stand for the parity of all churches.
As for other public interests, an insignificant number of respondents expect the authorities to realize them. But the population, as we could see (See Table 5 on page 35), has a different vision of the situation. We have already become accustomed to the mirror image of responses from the president's supporters and opponents in such a case.
The reasons for such a skeptical vision of the future of Belarusians could be explained by. At the same time, 27.5% of respondents trust free and independent trade unions, while 34.0% of respondents do not.

Results of the nation opinion poll,
Probably, as a result, our country is seeing a liberalization of public opinion on the issue of land relations. In particular, Table 39 shows that in Belarus there are 28.6% opponents of land sales, while five years ago this figure was 36.6%. There has been some progress regarding the ability of foreigners to own land in Belarus (see Table 40).
The dynamics of the distribution of answers to the question "Is trade turnover of land possible in Belarus?". Dynamics of distribution of answers to the question "Is it possible for foreigners to be able to own land in Belarus?",. Today, more than 44% of those questioned see it positively, because otherwise, in their opinion, the country would starve.
However, the same number of respondents say these measures are a faint pretense of the authorities' care for the people.

Trends of change in Belarusian public opinion about some socio-economic and political problems
The most pressing problems facing the country and the population (more than one answer is possible).
END TO STAGING AND BEGINNING OF INTEGRATION?
In such a path of reunification, the interests of Belarus and its state are considered secondary, of little importance. The declared demands for a special status for the republic in trade and economic relations with Russia worsened the situation. However, Russia is still interested in the development of the air defense system in the western direction, using the potential of the Belarusian side.
In mid-September, the contradictions between the Russian and Belarusian sides on the problem of the unification of the two countries became sharper. As for moving the deadline for the adoption of the Russian ruble by Belarus starting from January 1, 2004, no agreement was reached. What causes great concern is not only the cancellation of the June session of the Council of Ministers of the Union in the context of the transition of Belarus and Russia to the common currency - Russian.
Putin's initiative to accelerate the introduction of the common currency starting on January 1, 2004, only angered the Belarusian president (as he said). Speaking in plain language, Alexander Grigoryevich [Lukashenko] once again stated the well-known position of the republican. Lukashenko, we will consider other aspects of it - the alleged availability of all social categories of the State of the Union for direct administrative influence, as well as a.
Lukashenko's statement that Belarus will never initiate the destruction of the Union (which is what the Kremlin allegedly aims for) only as a method of political demagoguery seems unreasonable. Putin's silence on the issue deprives him of the right to play a role in the government of the Union State. Moreover, the practical activity of the Belarusian state machine is based on its opposition to Russia's visions of the state and its economy, Russian methodology of ruling.
Therefore, the idea about Belarus joining the Russian Federation as a subject (on the basis of the Russian Constitution) certainly seems unacceptable to the ruling class of the republic. Most likely, this is the deadlock on the path of the reunification of Belarus and Russia that the Russian president warned against in Sochi. In this respect, the role of the parliaments and the people of Russia and Belarus remains secondary and has no influence on the integration efforts.
History of youth born in 1970–1985"
In general, we will say that currently the presidents of Russia and Belarus are more concerned about fulfilling their ambitions for power than about the problem of further development of the unification process. So far there has not been a political concept of reintegration taking into account all the main interests of the parties, which can be taken seriously. Moreover, the crisis in relations between the leaders of Russia and Belarus is more dangerous for A.
Lukashenko and his political future: a new head of the republic is likely to be appointed not in Minsk, but in another place.
