Every second Russian is confident that the work of the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, is good for the country as a whole. This is evidenced by a recent data survey conducted by the Russian center for public opinion research (VTSIOM).
As was stated by the Secretary of the General Council of “United Russia”, Deputy Duma speaker Sergei Neverov, the results of VTSIOM polls “put an end to disputes about the attitude of people to the member of the Supreme High Council of the party, the head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov”.
“60% of Russians believe that Kadyrov is a strong independent politician, 36% say that he has achieved a lot and he has good prospects. The trust rating has increased two times since 2007, his respect rating — three times. 49% of Russians noted that Chechen leader brings benefits to our country”, — said Sergey Neverov on his page on a social network.
The Secretary of the General Council “United Russia” believes that Russians are able to distinguish truth from falsehood. “This is the answer to those who tried to dilute the information war against a real patriot of his country. The opinion of people and this handful of traitors once again are dispersed. Our people are wise,” he said.
In addition, according to VTSIOM, the Chechen leader is known by almost 90% of respondents, and causes mostly positive emotions.
