Poll: Racism on rise in Russia

From MosNews:

The number of people with racist views in Russia has increased by more than 20 million, a respected daily reported Monday citing the results of a survey carried out by the All-Russian Public Opinion Center (VTsIOM).

The survey revealed that the number of people with these views had gone up from 11% to 16% within a year, the RIA-Novosti news agency reported. The Levada Analytical Center said its research showed that 58% of Russians supported the idea of a “Russia for Russians.”

The Levada Center said 25% of Russians would back a ban on non-ethnic Russians occupying senior civil service posts. Nearly 30% said they would approve of moving Caucasus and Chinese people from the territories that historically belonged to Russia. Another 31% of Russians suggested, “the number of non-ethnic Russians living in Russian cities should be limited.”
