The activities of Vladimir Putin as president are approved by 59% of Russians. This figure was the lowest in the last 20 years. This is evidenced by the results of a survey conducted by the Levada Center in April.

Showed interview, which was carried out over the phone because of the coronavirus, 33% of respondents do not approve of Putin's activities. The Levada Center notes that it is only possible to compare data with the results of past polls obtained as a result of a personal interview, since respondents give more conformist and loyal to the authorities answers over the phone. Typically, gender differences can be 4-6%.

59% of approval is the lowest historical level for the past 20 years. Earlier, the lowest approval rate was recorded in November 2013 and in June 2000 - 61%.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said TASSthat the Kremlin is not inclined to fully trust the data of the Levada Center, since there are different survey methods. According to him, there are other polls that give a different picture.

In February of this year, only 35% of Russians trusted Putin. Compared to September 2019, the confidence rating decreased by four percentage points.
