MOSCOW, June 11. /ITAR-TASS/. The ratings of the opposition in Russia have been going down. No more than one percent of young people trust the opposition now, according to the results of a public opinion poll conducted by the Russia Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM).
Asked which leaders of the opposition parties could be entrusted with important state tasks, the respondents mentioned Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov (6.7%) and LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky(6.3%), which went down their ratings in 2013 when 8 and 7. 2% of respondents, respectively, spoke in their favor.
Leader of the A Just Russia party Sergei Mironov and founder of Yabloko party Grigory Yavlinsky have been trailing far behind with merely 1.2 and 0. 4% of respondents’support, respectively.
The ratings of young representatives of the opposition are at an extremely low level. Mikhail Prokhorov, on whom many had earlier pinned their hopes, gained support of merely 0.7% of the respondents, which was almost fourfold decrease from 2012.
Alexei Navalny, whose rating has noticeably declined over the past six months (from 0. 5% in January to 0.1% in May) is in the lowest position in the rating of confidence.
The poll was conducted in 130 settlements in 42 regions and republics of the Russian Federation on May 31-June 1 in which a total of 1,600 respondents were interviewed with an error margin down 3.4%.
