MOSCOW, September 5 (Itar-Tass) - The results of an independent opinion poll, which showed a high level of trust that the Russians place in the army, point to positive changes in the Russian Armed Forces, Director of the Center of Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Ruslan Pukhov told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“A higher confidence rating of the army is related with some positive changes in the Russian Armed Forces,” he said in comments on the results of an independent opinion poll over the Russian confidence rating to key social institutions. As many as 62 percent of respondents stated about the trust to the Russian Armed Forces, the opinion poll suggests.
“Such a high level of trust was reached thanks to efficient work of the leadership of the Russian Defense Ministry and unprecedented information openness of the military agency,” the expert said.
The trust rating to different state institutions was made by specialists of the sociological research holding ROMIR. The Russian army is ranked fourth in the rating with 62 percent of Russians putting trust in it. As many as 1,000 respondents aged from 18 to 60 years and who live in the cities with a population above 100,000 people in seven federal districts participated in the opinion poll.
