APPROVAL RATINGS

This survey was carried out April 24 – 27, 2020 with a representative sample of all Russian urban and rural residents. The sample comprised 1608 people age 18 or older. Due to recommended self-isolation measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus this survey was conducted by means of computer-assisted telephone interviews. The response distribution is presented as a percentage of the number of participants.

Please note that, in the tables below, we do not publish approval of the activities of government institutions and the situation in the country due to the necessary changes in conducting the April survey (inability to conduct surveys face-to-face). Approval ratings of major government institutions for March 2020 and earlier are accessible in the indicators.
