MOSCOW, May 13 (RIA Novosti) – Russians have become more satisfied with their quality of life, while their desire to protest has decreased, according to polls by the Levada Center and the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM) released Tuesday.

Last month, 46 percent of Russians said they were generally satisfied with their quality of life, compared to 43 percent of respondents in March and 40 percent in February, according to VTsIOM.

About 11 percent of the respondents were "mostly not satisfied" with their life conditions in April, 12 percent in March and 14 percent in February. Only 2 percent of Russian were "absolutely not satisfied" with their lives, and 39 percent were "somewhat satisfied, somewhat not," VTsIOM reported.

Those most satisfied with their quality of life were respondents aged 18-24 (57 percent) and respondents with above-average incomes (56 percent). The numbers are a bit lower among the elderly (40 percent) and people with low incomes (38 percent). The opinion poll was conducted by VTsIOM April 26-27 among 1,600 people across Russia. The statistical error was 3.4 percent.

According to the poll by Levada Center, the protest activity of Russians is decreasing. In April, 74 percent of Russians said that mass demonstrations in their locality are unlikely versus 66 percent in February. If mass demonstrations were still held, 80 percent of the respondents said they would not participate in them (versus 39 percent in February). The survey was conducted April 25-28 among more than 1,600 people across the country. The margin of error was 3.4 percent.
