Abstract: This study addresses Russian people’s attitudes toward the welfare state along two dimensions: the perceived performance of welfare institutions (how things are) and the desired role of the welfare state (how things should be). The 2015 Social Distinctions of Modern Russia survey provides the data for the analysis, which sheds light on the combined welfare state opinions. These attitudinal indicators are set against the backdrop of European survey results by Roosma, van Oorschot, and Gelissen (2014). The results show similarities to the findings of the European survey as to the proportions of respondents falling within the fourfold combined welfare state opinions. Contrary to Roosma et al.’s findings, we found little variance in terms of education, subjective income, egalitarianism, or labour market position in Russians’ combined welfare state opinions. Conclusions for class analysis in the Russian context are drawn.
