* The original question was worded by the source as follows: "There are different opinions about what the suggestions of Vladimir Putin about amending the Russian Constitution were linked to. Some say, these changes are adopted primarily to improve the system of state administration and in the interests of the majority of the country's population; others say, these changes are primarily adopted in the interests of Vladimir Putin himself to extend his authority and allow him to stay in power after 2024. What opinion do you personally agree with the most?"

Approximately 80 percent of respondents heard about the amendments and 20 percent did not.

The survey was conducted in 137 municipalities in 50 federal subjects of Russia at respondents' homes.

Figures may not sum up to 100 due to rounding.
