The low-income groups of respondents are most prone to protest sentiment, as well as those believing the country is moving on the wrong path and those disapproving of the president’s policies. 

A similar situation is observed with respect to protests with political demands. In January 2021, 45% of Russians considered them possible, in May – 28%, in August – 27%. At the same time, the willingness to participate in such protests has also increased: if in January 2021 15% would have taken part in such protests, in May – 16% (changes within the error margin), in August – 19%.

Methodology

This survey was conducted August 19 – 26 2021, among a representative sample of all Russian urban and rural residents. The sample was comprised of 1619 people aged 18 or older in 137 municipalities of 50 regions of the Russian Federation. The survey was conducted as a personal interview in respondents’ homes.
