The action «Immortal Regiment», aimed to preserve the memory of the Great Patriotic War, is approved by more than 95% of our fellow citizens. This indicator has not changed significantly over the past few years. On Friday such data was repored by the press service of VTsIOM, referring to the results of the survey.
Talking about the plans for the next year, 40% of respondents announced their intention to visit the procession. More often citizens over 35 (over 40) said this, but among the 25-34-year-old potential participants the percentage is lower — 36%.
It should be noted that in general 95% of Russians know about the action, but only 24% told about participation in it. At the same time, this share is higher among residents of villages and small towns — 26% and 30%, respectively.
Commenting on the poll, the head of the practice of social modeling and forecasting VTsIOM Julia Baskakova noted that the action «Immortal Regiment» becomes an element of the Victory Day. Residents of the city participate in it to march in a victorious formation with a picture of their relative-hero. According to Baskakova, the action embodies the most important meanings — solidarity and the memory of the war.
