Putin’s approval rating rises to 88% in October, says Levada

The latest rating was one point below Putin's high of 89% in June

Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s public approval rating rose to 88% in October from 84% the previous month, according to the Levada Center.

The latest rating was one point below Putin’s high of 89% in June, the independent Moscow-based polling company said in a website statement on Wednesday. State-run VTsIOM said on 22 October that the president’s backing rose to a record 88.9% in its survey after Russia began bombing Syria.

Sixty-one percent of Levada’s respondents said Russia was heading in the right direction, up from 55% in September. The survey of 1,600 people was conducted 23-26 October and had a margin of error of 3.4% points.
