Emigration Urge Among Russians at Its Record Low

Following some political actions and the rise of mass protests, the number of people who want to leave Russia has halved.

      Eleven percent of respondents of the poll, made by state-run VTsIOM pollster, want to emigrate from Russia, compared to 22 percent in June 2011 and 16 percent in 1991, right after Soviet Union's demise when the poll was taken for the first time. 

      Most of potential emigrants are young people: 24% of respondents from 18 to 24 wants to move to another country. A group of respondents aged 25-35 shows 14% result, people of 35-44 years - 13%, 45-49 years - 7%. And only 1 per cent wants to leave the country among those over 60. 

      VTsIOM also differentiated people according their political preferences. So, the highest per cent of those who wanted to stay among Vladimir Putin's supporters - almost 93%. And among middle-class supporters of liberal tendencies and some opposition politicians, a quarter said they want to leave.

      The poll covered 1,600 respondents nationwide and had a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.

      Experts give different appraisals on the poll's results. Some of them say the per cents lowering can be explained by general decrease of protest activity. On the contrary, the other experts say opposition actions inspired people for making changes in their country's life and having the full responsibility for it.
