A key element of our research on the Russian opposition is to examine the attitudes of Russia’s educated urbanites, or those that Putin’s former strategist Vladislav Surkov called the “angry urbanites.” To do so we conducted online surveys, with the generous support of the Smith Richardson Foundation. Over the next few months we will be writing about what we have found. To begin this series, we are publishing the results of questions on attitudes to the regime, the opposition and the economy, as well as data on emotions and identities.  In doing so, we hope to get some deeper sense of the emotional and material motivations of Russia’s educated urbanites. We would love to hear what you think…
