Based on available data, the top ten regions with the highest stability are the Chukotsky autonomous region, the Kemerovo and Belgorod regions, Sakha, Kamchatsky Krai, Tatarstan, Yamalo-Nenetsk autonomous region, the Leningrad and Tyumen regions, and Komi, which received from 8.5 to 8.1 points.

The high stability group included 22 regions, beginning with the Penza region with 7.9 points and ending with Khakasiya with 7.2.

17 federal regions were assigned low stability ratings, ranging from 5.1 to 5 points, and 12 more showed low stability, from 4.9 to 1.8 points, Dagestan being the lowest.

The analysts named such positive stability events in the Penza region as the agreement for a 2.3 billion ruble loan for the region achieved by the acting governor Ivan Belozertsev, the plans of an Italian company to produce a greenhouse complex in the Serdobsk area agricultural park, and signature of protocols of intention between “Mokshan-Agro” and a Serbian company to build a vegetable and fruit storage terminal.

Moreover, the negotiations held by Ivan Belozertsev over the construction of a laminated plywood production plant in Kuznetsk also had a positive effect on the rating, just as the opening of a brick factory in the Belinsk area.

Moreover, the region benefited from its rugby team winning the fifth place in the “Petersburg Politics” and “Sport-Express” sports ratings.

A negative effect was registered from a protest against increased public transportation fare.

Among the notable events that did not affect the rating was the registration of the State Duma deputy for the CPRF faction Vladimir Simagin, as well as head of the Liberal Democratic faction in the city Duma and board chairman of the charity foundation “Siyanie” Zhigansha Tuktarov, as candidates for the regional gubernatorial election on July 31.
