MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval rating has reached historical maximum and hit almost 90%, according to a poll conducted by Russian Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM).
Putin’s approval rating has broken a new record reaching 89.9%. The last record was registered in June 2015 — 89.1%.
According to WCIOM, "such high rating of approval of the Russian president is registered, first of all, in connection with events in Syria, Russian aviation’s airstrikes at terrorist positions."
Sociologists reminded that the Russian president’s rating has remained higher than 80% for the last two years. "Putin’s rating started growing in spring 2014 against the backdrop of Russia’s reunification with Crimea and Sevastopol. In March 2014, the rating stood at 76.2% on average, in April — at 82.2%, and in May — at 86.2%," WCIOM said.
The poll was conducted by WCIOM on October 17-18, 2015. A total of 1,600 people from 130 cities in 46 regions took part in the poll. The statistical error does not exceed 3.5%.
