Two thirds of the Russian population fear the growing alcohol and drug addiction
Out of all the events and processes underway in the country today, the growing level of alcoholism, high prices and the crisis in the housing and utilities complex are the greatest concerns for the Russians. This is the result of a poll conducted by the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM). According to the poll, two thirds of the Russian population fear the growing alcohol and drug addiction. Every second respondent takes to heart the growth of prices on commodities and services. Forty four percent are alarmed by the state of the housing and utilities system and the growth of tariffs. Thirty five percent of the polled spoke of the low living standards of the Russian population majority. Another 29% are concerned over the growing crime rate, including juvenile delinquency, and 24% - over the increasing number of homeless children. About 25% of Russians fear new acts of terrorism, and another 25% - limited access to free education and health care. Russians are also alarmed by the preserving tensions in Chechnya, falling morale and degrading moral norms, corruption, sway of red tape, increasing non-Russian population in traditionally Russian regions, unstable relations with countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States, reforms of the pension system and privileges. The VTsIOM national poll was conducted on May 21-22, 2005 and involved 1,507 people in 153 settlements in 46 Russian regions and republics. The statistic error does not exceed 3.4%
