State parliament (DUMA) and local authorities were supported by 4% each, whilst the Federation Council and political parties by 2% each.

Young people aged 18 24 (35%) are also inclined to trust the President. Apart from that, they score the government (9%), mass media (11%) and law authorities (7%) higher than other respondents.
