Level of approval of Stalin by residents of the Russian Federation broke the historical record


In March sociologists of the Russian Levada Center conducted another survey about the attitude of Russians to Joseph Stalin's figure. Poll showed that in 2019 the total level of the positive attitude towards the Soviet leader reached the maximum indicator for all years of researches: the admiration of Stalin, respect or sympathy for it were declared by every second participant of poll (51%). The most significant growth (on 12 percentage points) fell on "respect" - such attitude towards Stalin at 41% of respondents, and it is the most widespread.

the Share of those who are negative to Stalin, sickening, the fear or disgust, is three times lower - 14%.

As are noted by sociologists, dynamics of public opinion in the 2000th years testifies to three periods of prevalence of these or those estimates of the person Stalin in Russia. At the beginning of the 2000th years approximately equal ratio of positive and negative opinions was noted. In 2008-2014 the neutral, bezotsenochny relation began to prevail that, according to sociologists, demonstrated the increased indifference of the population to a Stalinism perspective. At last, since 2015 the number neutrally or negatively adjusted Russians to Stalin decreases.

the same trends are visible also on the issue of recognition of merits of Stalin before the country. Following the results of the last March poll its role is considered by positive 70% of Russians that is a record for all the time of polls. Only 19% estimate its role at country lives negatively. At the same time the level of the positive attitude towards Stalin is higher, than to Brezhnev, Gorbachev, Yeltsin and others.
