Events of the month

In January, the most outstanding events for Russians were the protests in Kazakhstan and the entry of CSTO troops into the country (22%), as well as the situation around Ukraine (21%). The events related to the coronavirus worried respondents less: the appearance of a new strain, vaccination and QR codes were noted by 14% of respondents.


The survey by the Levada Center was conducted January 27 – February 02, among a representative sample of all Russian urban and rural residents. The sample was comprised of 1626 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%

The ANO Levada Center is included in the registry of non-commercial organizations acting as foreign agents.
