MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. International armed conflicts and rising prices are Russians' most feared threats, pollsters said on Thursday. These worries topped concerns of more than half the country's citizens, responses of 1,600 people surveyed across 46 regions suggested.
Sixty-two percent of those polled rated military conflict a Number One threat confronting the near future, twice the number of those doubting an imminent eruption when researchers toured at the end of October.
Fifty-eight percent of those interviewed feared inflation and 45% worried over health issues, said the state-run All-Russia Public Opinion Center (VTsIOM).
Fears also focussed on falling incomes (39%), natural disasters (31%) and unemployment (23%).
