The Russians think Vladimir Putin as a president managed:

  • To improve status of Russia at the international scene (38%).
  • One quarter of those surveyed (24%) declared life standards improved during his rule.
  • 22% think Putin prevented Russia from disintegration.
  • Only 8% of the survey participants mentioned increase of self-consciousness and self-respect of the Russian population.

The highest level of unanimity was noticed among the respondents when mentioning improvement of Russia status at the international scene. About 38% of the Russians think Putin managed to cope with this very issue best of all. In other issues participants of the survey are not that concordant. The second group of issues contains: life standards improvement, prevention of country disintegration, strengthening of defensive potential. Each of these issues was mentioned by 19-25% respondents, i.e. a fifth or fourth part of the Russian population. The third group includes issues with rating of 14-17% each: economic growth, anti-terrorist struggle, growth of residential construction, popularization of healthy way of life, culture and sport support. The last places occupy: anti-drug struggle, democracy strengthening, corruption decrease, cutting down officialdom. 7% of the surveyed Russians think that Putin failed to cope with any of the mentioned problems.

Residents from megapolises (with population above 1 mln) attached less importance to global issues of the second group (life standards improvement, prevention of country disintegration, strengthening of defensive potential), but more often than those from other cities and towns mentioned growth of residential construction. In rural areas such issues as economic growth, growth of residential construction, popularization of healthy way of life were mentioned less often, while strengthening of defensive potential is of great importance for the respondents of this age.

Evaluation of some issues depends on age. Young respondents evaluate growth of residential construction and popularization of healthy way of life higher, while strengthening of defensive potential - lower. Among elder respondents the trend is vice versa: improvements in the strengthening of defensive potential, inflation growth are treated with more importance, while growth of residential construction and development of medium-scale and small-scale business are mentioned less often.

So, one can notice various trends of evaluation of such issues as strengthening of defensive potential, growth of residential construction, by younger and elder respondents. There are 3% of those thinking that Putin failed to cope with any of the problems among young respondents while among the participants aged above 60 the share made up 11% of such.
