Most Russians are Proud of Country’s Army and Navy

Specialists from the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Centre (VTsIOM) presented the data from a survey of Russians dedicated to the Day of Russia. Most country residents (73 per cent) know that on June 12, the country traditionally celebrates Russia Day, which until 2002 was called Independence Day. It is noted that over the past 15 years, citizens’ awareness of this date has grown by 11 percentage points (62 per cent in 2006). 

The centre’s experts found out that the reason for pride in modern Russia is most often the country’s army and navy (24 per cent), its people (9 per cent), foreign policy (9 per cent), the President (6 per cent), as well as the scale of the country and the beauty of nature ( 4 per cent). In addition, 10 per cent of respondents answered that they like everything in their country.

For foreigners who have never been to Russia, residents of the country would recommend visiting St. Petersburg (39 per cent), Moscow (29 per cent), Baikal (22 per cent), Altai (16 per cent), and Crimea (14 per cent). The respondents also named Sochi and the Krasnodar Territory (12 per cent), Kamchatka (10 per cent), the cities of the Golden Ring (9 per cent), Karelia (8 per cent), and Kazan (7 per cent) as the best cities for tourist trips.
