People in power

More than half of Russians (56%) believe that the current people in power are concerned only with their financial and career well-being. This indicator has been growing over the past few years and reached the level of 2011 (54%). Only 16% believe that they are a good team leading the country in the right way – the lowest point since 2013.

Approximately the same proportions of Russians aged 18-24, 25-39 and 40-54 believe that people in power are concerned only with their financial and career well-being – 59%, 61% and 62%, respectively. The opinion that this is a good team of politicians is most common among respondents aged 55 years and older: 21%.

The majority of voters of all opposition parties believe that the people in power are concerned only with their personal well-being. The Communist Party voters are especially radical in this belief – 78%. Among the voters of United Russia, this point of view has only 26% of support. 39% of United Russia voters believe that this is a good team of politicians who are leading the country on the right course.

This survey was conducted September 23 – 29 2021, among a representative sample of all Russian urban and rural residents.
