Trust rating of Vladimir Putin fell to 23%. This follows from the results of the survey “Levada-center”. Respondents were asked to mention the names of politicians and public figures who they trust the most. The first three lines took Vladimir Putin, Mikhail Mishustin (10%) and Vladimir Zhirinovsky (10%).
Seventh place — the Governor of Khabarovsk territory Sergey Furgala (3%), who was detained earlier this month on charges of murder and attempted murder. Opposition politician Alexei Navalny became the ninth with 2% of votes.
17% of respondents said they trust no one.
However, 60% of respondents said they generally approve of Putin as President. This is one of the worst results for all of his years in power. In 2015, this figure reached 87%.
In November 2017, according to “Levada center,” Putin was trusted by 59% of respondents. The second and third were heads of the defense Ministry and foreign Ministry Sergei Shoigu and Sergey Lavrov.
In early summer VTSIOM conducted a similar survey. The Russians were asked who they would trust the decision of important state questions, and who will not.
The rating also headed Putin: he would trust to 28.6%, followed by defense Minister Sergei Shoigu (14.8 per cent) and foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (10.3 per cent). Bulk gained 2.5 percent.
In the list of politicians that Russians do not trust the first place was taken by the leader of LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky — 22%.
