Russians Prefer to Spend their Spare Time with TV

Quarter of Russians prefer siting in front of television in their spare time, according a survey by the Public Opinion Foundation (FOM).

      The recent survey was planned to reveal Russian people's preferences for relaxing. The respondents were allowed to give multiple answers. Besides 25 percent of TV fans, 15 percent of respondents devote their spare time to children, grandchildren or other family members. 11 percent said they enjoy reading, while ten percent just have a good sleep.

      Among other activities that Russians prefer doing in their leisure time is going for walks (eight percent), surfing the Internet or playing computer games (eight percent) and hanging out with friends (eight percent).

      Seven percent said they do housework for recreation, six percent enjoy gardening and five percent opt for other outdoor activities, such as hunting, fishing and picnics. Four percent go in for sports. Only three percent visit museums, cafes and restaurants in their spare time.

      According to the survey, 54 percent of respondents have several hours of spare time every day, while 25 percent have time to rest only on weekends or holidays, and 16 percent have no spare time at all.

      Almost a half of respondents (46 percent) say they don't have enough money to make their spare time more various.
