62% of respondents approve of the activity of the heads of their regions, 34% disapprove: rise and fall by 3 percentage points, respectively.

Approval of the activities of the State Duma increased slightly: 47% (in January – 45%) approve, 49% (in January – 51%) disapprove.

The greatest change in trust can be noted in Sergey Lavrov: in February, 14% of Russians began to trust him (3% more than in January of this year). Also, trust in Vladimir Zhirinovsky has grown to 10% (by 2%), almost equaling the trust in Mikhail Mishustin. The level of trust in Vladimir Putin and Sergei Shoigu has hardly changed. It is worth noting that Dmitry Medvedev and Nikolay Bondarenko have got into the top 10 most-trusted politicians ranking.

Among all respondents, the rating of United Russia has increased by 4% compared to December 2021 and reached 31%. The level of support for the Communist Party has decreased to 13% (in December 2021 – 15%). The electoral ratings of other political parties have not changed.

 

Among those who are ready to vote and have decided on the choice of a party or would spoil the ballot, the rating of support for United Russia has increased to 44% (in December 2021 – 40%). 19% (in December 2021 – 19%) who came to the polling stations would vote for the Communist Party. The level of support for the Liberal Democratic Party and the Just Russia – For Truth has practically not changed, among the “New People” it has decreased to 5% (-3% compared to December last year).

METHODOLOGY

The survey by the Levada Center was conducted January 17 – February 21, 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%
