70% Of Russians Approve Of Ban On Turkish Products: Public Opinion Fund Featured

17 December 2015

According to a poll, conducted by the Public Opinion Fund and published December 6, approximately 70 percent of Russians surveyed (1,500 participants in 53 subjects of Russia) support the country's restrictions against Turkish food imports.

The poll has a 3.6 percent margin of error.

The survey centered on whether Russia's move to enforce restrictions on Turkish food products is justified. Sixty nine percent of respondents selected that the decision is justified.

Thirteen percent of the results were spread across the following selections: that Russians agreed that the measures would lead to a growth in prices on produce; Russia has no agriculture; the decision would lead to less diversity among produce, or that the war is against Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and not the country's people.

Other possible selections included: “I hope that it will have a positive affect on economic development" and "they carry poisoned vegetables and fruits.”

In a different poll, regarding Russia's embargo on food products from the EU, US, Norway, Canada and Australia, RIA Novosti news agency reported that the number of Russian citizens that do not approve of the food embargo doubled to 20 percent in November of this year, compared to 9 percent in August 2014, when a poll was conducted by state-run VTsIOM, according to RIA as reported by the Moscow Times. Overall, however, the majority of Russians polled still support the measure to ban food imports from these countries.
