Russia is a nation with a tortured history. Totally corrupt czars, and then replaced by very corrupt rulers who couldn’t make their pie in the sky economic system function.
And the result of this is a brutalized people. Who so often hate their own life, and end up blaming others, tossing out their hatred to calm their own guilty psyche.
It’s a small step, but it will take them 50 years to really make major progress. As the old generation dies off, and as they seem to be making some economic progress, people will see opportunities, and not be left always looking for some victim to blame for all the problems.
It is just Psychology of the human mind.
