Russians still trust president, Church the most - poll

Moscow, December 4, 2013

The president and the Orthodox Church are still the most trusted institutions and structures in Russia.

Over 60% of the respondents surveyed in an express poll conducted by Romir in November said they "fully trust" or "tend to trust" the rating leaders.

The poll surveyed 500 respondents aged from 18 to sixty who live in cities with populations of up to 100,000 people in seven federal districts.

Sixty-percent of the respondents said they trust the president, 64% said they trust the church and the Russian Academy of Sciences, and 61% said they trust the army," Romir told Interfax. These indicators have not changed since the summer, when a similar poll was conducted.

In the meantime, the other institutions included in the rating lost some Russian confidence in the past few months.

The respondents' trust has decreased the least in the government (from 52% in July to 49% in November) and the police (from 36% to 32%), which, at the same time, remains at the top of the anti-rating (62% of the respondents said they do not trust the police).
