More People in Russia Support Protest Movement

42% of Russians support the protest rallies, which is 10% more than in March (32% for rallies), according to the recent poll conducted by the Levada centre. The results of the poll were published on the Levada center official website.

      The current situation has the same support for rallies as there was in December 2011 after the parliamentary elections, when thousands of people unexpectedly went to the streets and held rallies in Chisty Prudy and in Bolotnaya square in Moscow.

      There are still some "undecided" Russians – people who cannot say for sure whether they support the protests or not (some 11%). In March their number was 17% and in July - 19%.

      A third of all respondents (33%) don't see any basis for criminal prosecution of opposition leaders. However, another 29% of respondents support prosecution, and 38% find difficulty in replying.

      The poll also identified those who "might" or "probably" will take to the streets to rally against the authorities in the nearest future – in March it was 14%, now – 19%. And 5% of respondents said they would come to rallies beyond doubt, which is a record number for all time this question was asked.

      The opinion poll conducted on July 20-23. There were 1601 participants 18 or older, from 130 centers of population of 45 regions of Russia. The statistical error is less that 3,4%.
