Most Vaccinated Russians Don’t Support Sanctions Against Unvaccinated Compatriots

The majority of employed Russians who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 do not support the decision to introduce sanctions against their unvaccinated colleagues, which follows from the results of the survey conducted by the SuperJob job search service specialists.  

According to the survey results, only 1 in 9 vaccinated Russians believes that it is necessary to impose sanctions against those who do not want to be vaccinated (against coronavirus) in the absence of contraindications (11 per cent), while most of the respondents (67 per cent) are against such measures. The arguments are as follows: the first group says that a sick person is a danger to others, while the second reminds that the decision on vaccination should be voluntary.

It is specified that there are more opponents of harsh measures against those who do not want to be vaccinated among women (71 per cent vs 64 per cent of men). In turn, Russians under the age of 34 oppose the imposition of sanctions more often than their mature compatriots (69 per cent against 60 per cent of respondents over 45). In addition, almost 3 out of 4 respondents with an income of less than 50 thousand rubles per month (74 per cent) are against such sanctions.
