on social media

Almost half of respondents (53%) believe that citizens have the right
to public protest against the Russian Orthodox Church’s position on
major social issues and criticize it but not in churches, according to
the findings of a poll conducted among 1,600 people on July 20-23.

More than a third of respondents (38%) said that by staging the
anti-Putin performance at Christ the Savior Cathedral, the Pussy Riot
members rather violated the public moral rules than insulted the
president (9%).

Most respondents said that the protest was aimed against the church
and believers (19%), against the church’s involvement in politics (17%),
and 15% think President Putin was the main target. Sixteen percent of
respondents agreed with all three assertions.
