* The original question was worded by the source as follows: "In your view, what are the three most important environmental issues facing Russia today? That is, the top environmental issues you feel should receive the greatest attention from your local leaders?"
** The source specified that Russia produced "a national sample that is more urban & educated, and with higher incomes than their fellow citizens. We refer to these respondents as 'Upper Deck Consumer Citizens'. They are not nationally representative of their country."

The results do not sum up to 100 due to multiple responses.
