This issue of the Russian Analytical Digest provides a snapshot of political and economic life in Vladivostok today. Andrei Kalachinsky argues that although the federal government is pouring billions of dollars into the region, these investments have had little impact in terms of creating new jobs or stemming the flood of qualified workers leaving to find opportunities elsewhere. The report is followed by population statistics and an opinion poll that assesses the local population's reaction to the vigilante killings of members of the militia in Primorye.
