Awareness about the Berlin Wall in Russia in 2019

As of 2019, nearly one half of respondents in Russia were well aware about the Berlin Wall. The second largest group, represented by 44 percent of survey participants, admitted they heard something about it, but did not know its history in details. Only 15 percent of the Russian population between 18 and 24 years old knew well about the wall separating West Berlin from East Germany, or the German Democratic Republic (GDR).
