Summary/Abstract: The academic circles and media commonly associate political uncertainty with aggravated economic risks, discouraged investments, and stunted economic growth. The goal of this survey is to explore the reaction of domestic businesses to political signaling. It allows addressing a key question regarding the perception of uncertainty in Russia: how sensitive are the economic agents to political trends? How robust is their assessment of the extent to which the rules of the game are changing, and what are the threshold levels of political change at which the uncertainty begins to affect economic decisions?
