Nobel Peace Prize

A quarter of Russians (26%) know that the editor-in-chief of Novaya Gazeta Dmitry Muratov has received the Nobel Peace Prize.

Russians 55 years and older are most aware of this – more than a third (37%). The respondents aged 18-24 and 25-39 were the least aware: 15% and 16%, respectively.

A quarter of Russians (26%) have positive feelings about this news, 5% have negative feelings. Almost two thirds (64%) are indifferent.

Responding to the question about other compatriots who received the Nobel Prize, 11% recalled Mikhail Gorbachev, 10% – A. Sakharov, 7% – A. Solzhenitsyn, 4% – Zh. Alferov. 72% found it difficult to answer. 


This survey was conducted October 21 – 27 2021, among a representative sample of all Russian urban and rural residents. The sample consisted of 1636 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. The answer distribution is presented as percentages of the total number of participants along with data from previous surveys.

The statistical error of these studies for a sample of 1600 people (with a probability of 0.95) does not exceed:

3.4% for indicators around 50%

2.9% for indicators around 25%/75%

2.0% for indicators around 10%/90%

1.5% for indicators around 5%/95%
