Most Russians Know Nothing About Days Of Wrath Protests - Poll

Moscow, 13 May: Only 2 per cent of Russians are attentively following Days of Wrath (protests) carried out by the opposition (on a regular basis). The majority, or 68 per cent of Russians, learnt about these actions for the first time during the opinion survey itself, the Levada Centre (for public opinion research) told Interfax today.

Every fourth respondent (25 per cent) "has heard something" about Days of Wrath, shows the poll, which was conducted in 45 regions of Russia on 15-18 April. Residents of Moscow, respondents aged between 40 and 54, respondents with university degrees, supporters of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia and A Just Russia (party) appeared to be best informed.

A total of 29 per cent of Russians support Days of Wrath. A slightly smaller proportion of the population (26 per cent) are against such protests. The majority of respondents, or 46 per cent, said they were undecided. The public opinion experts said that Days of Wrath were backed by the same categories of Russians that appeared to be best informed about such protests.
