MOSCOW, August 13. /TASS/. One in two Russians has given the cold shoulder to the idea of destroying foods prohibited from import into Russia, as follows from a Levada poll published on the pollster’s website on Thursday.
Those questioned are critical of the destruction of foodstuffs to which Russia’s counter-sanctions apply. The results look as follows: 17% are definitely positive, 23% are rather positive, 33% are rather negative and 15% are definitely negative, while all others remained undecided.
Asked about what was the best way of handling the smuggled foods (several reply options could be selected), the handover of foods to orphanages and hospitals was supported by 43% of respondents, to the needy Russians, by 41%, the delivery of products to Donbas, by 24%, and to famine victims in Africa, by 12%. A tiny 15% was for the destruction of smuggled foods.
Levada polled 1,600 men and women of age representing Russia’s urban and rural population in 134 communities and cities in 46 regions of Russia. The statistical error margin was no greater than 3.4%
The elimination of prohibited foods in Russia began on August 6.
