Lavrov and Shoigu lead in popularity among Russian ministers

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov remain leaders in terms of visibility and performance. This is reported by the Interfax agency with reference to the results of the VTsIOM research.

More than half of Russians (77% and 63%, respectively) were able to correctly name Shoigu and Lavrov’s posts, according to a survey conducted in September among 1600 people in 130 settlements in 42 regions, territories and republics of Russia. The top 5 also includes Minister of Sports Vitaly Mutko (34%), Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev (26%) and the Minister of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov (23%). The positions of the Minister for the Development of the Far East, Alexander Galushka, and the Deputy Chairman of the Government, Yury Trutnev, were able to accurately name 5% of the respondents.

The respondents were also asked to rate, on a scale from 1 ("very poor") to 5 ("excellent"), how well the ministers do their job (the question was asked without specifying the position of the minister). According to the results of the study, the rating of the quality of work of ministers was also topped by Sergei Shoigu (average score - 4,63) and Sergei Lavrov (4,57).
