MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. The overwhelming majority of respondents (87%) polled by the All-Russia Center for studies of public opinion (VTSIOM) have condemned the armed attack on the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris and the assassination of its journalists, the Russian pollster said, citing the results of a public opinion poll released on Monday.
Twelve people were killed and eleven wounded at the office of the Charlie Hebdo magazine after it had published caricatures of Prophet Muhammad.
Most of the respondents in Russia blamed the tragic incident on an insult made to religious feelings of Muslim believers (30%) and an excessively mild politics of the French authorities to the mass media allowed to publish materials which infringe on the dignity of religious believers (25%). The pollster quoted a number of respondents ( 11%) as saying that the French authorities had admitted too many immigrants into France; 8% of Russian respondents blamed the incident on a handful of Moslem extremists who demonstrated excessive cruelty and violence; 6% of respondents blamed French secret services for poor performance.
A total of 1, 600 people on 45 territories were interviewed by the VTSIOM pollster on January 17-18 with a statistical error margin of no more than 3.
