MOSCOW, November 23. /TASS/. The majority of Russia’s citizens (76%) tend to support a ban on flights to Egypt, said researchers of the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM). The results of the WCIOM poll have been published on the center’s website on Monday.
As many as 16% of those polled said they did not support the ban, another 8% were undecided.
On the other hand, 74% of respondents believe the ban should be temporary, 16% say it should be permanent, while 10% said they found this question difficult to answer.
Among the popular answers to the question about the conditions of lifting the restrictive measures were "the completion of war in Syria, the destruction of ISIL [the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is the former name of the IS terrorist group banned in Russia — TASS] terrorists (31%), "tightened security (30%), "the availability of high-quality equipment" (a thorough search) (7%).
The poll was conducted on November 14 and 15 with 1,600 people surveyed in Russia’s 46 regions. The margin of error does not exceed 3.5%.
