25% of Russians think it normal to report against colleagues - poll

MOSCOW. Aug 11 (Interfax) - Eighty-four percent of Russians say there are people snitching on colleagues at their office. The opinion is most frequently expressed by public officers (96%) and managers (92%), Interfax learned from Joblist.ru portal experts on Tuesday.

The portal polled 5,000 working Russians in all of the federal districts in early August.

Eighty-six percent of the respondents said they knew who was informing bosses against others. Seventy-two percent condemned such people, and 25% said they were neutral about the 'normal' practice.

Three percent said they would accept the offer to snitch on colleagues, and 5% said they were already doing that. The most frequent explanations are: "That's my character, I can do nothing about that;" "I hope for a promotion;" "I suck up to my bosses;" "I fight for justice;" and "It's my revenge or I do that out of spite."

Fifty-three percent of the respondents said there were no companies without snitchers at all.
