The number of those who share this view has grown by 6% since March.

At the same time, 22% of the respondents wouldn’t mind if Putin holds office for another six years after his current term expires (up from 17% in March), while 7% would like Dmitry Medvedev to take over in 2018 (6% in March). The number of those who haven’t formed their opinion on the issue has decreased from 34% in March to 22% now.

As for what top federal officials are guided by in their work, more than one-third of the respondents (35%) think that it’s “retaining their grip on power at any cost and defending their current positions”, but the majority of people sincerely feel that those currently at the helm really want to “turn Russia into a modern, economically developed and socially comfortable country” (25%) and to “revive its great power status and the former geopolitical balance of forces” (25%).
