European countries were in the forefront of the “happiest” countries in the world, and the expert questioned the results of the report in light of economic difficulties, including high inflation rates, faced by the countries of the European Union.

Finland topped the list of the “happiest” countries in the world for the sixth year in a row, while Lebanon and Afghanistan rounded out the list of the most unhappy countries.

Denmark ranked second, Iceland third, Russia 70th, and Ukraine 92nd in the world.

The World Happiness Report, which is released annually under the auspices of the United Nations, includes 6 main factors that explain the differences in happiness reports around the world, namely: social support, financial income, health, freedom and corruption index.

Although Russia ranked 70th, the results of a survey conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center showed that 82% of Russians feel happy, of which 35% expressed their opinion with complete confidence.

As for the source and basis of happiness, 24% of Russians who noted that they are happy (82% of Russians) named their family, the health of themselves and loved ones (21%), general satisfaction with life (20%), and a good job. (19%).

While Russian citizens who feel unhappy (18%) indicated that the lack of material resources is the reason for their feeling of poverty.

Expert: Europe quickly rose due to colonial expansion

Expert and economic analyst Alexander Nazarov questioned the report’s conclusions in light of the economic difficulties, including high inflation, faced by countries in the European Union.

He pointed out that the growth of cities is usually associated with the economic growth of a civilization (state), which is reflected in its strength, wealth and other areas.

Regarding the reason for the economic recovery in Europe, the expert said: “Europe has risen in the rankings very quickly due to colonial expansion, but the golden age of European civilization has already ended today.”

“Against this background, all sorts of “indicators of happiness” that are issued in the West, where Western countries occupy high places, despite high inflation and banking collapse (growing catastrophe in the economy), are especially absurd,” he added.

It is noteworthy that the publication of the World Happiness Report coincided with the celebration of the International Day of Happiness on March 20 of each year. Here are the top 10 countries on the list:

1. Finland

2. Denmark

3. Iceland
