Three quarters of Russians believe the Russian Orthodox Church should keep away from politics, while half of the citizens think the Church has some influence on the country’s internal affairs, a poll has revealed.
The Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM) conducted the survey to find out what ordinary people think about relations between Church and the state, and what they should be.
According to the pollsters, the number of those who recognise the Church has a hand in domestic policies has grown from 44 per cent to 50 per cent within the past two years. Some 43 per cent of respondents also feel it interferes in external affairs.
Almost two thirds of citizens say the Church has an impact on the spiritual and ethical life of society. Nevertheless, about half of those questioned say the institution plays no role in their lives. At the same time, slightly less than a quarter of people would like the Church to be more involved in solving problems important for the country, while 19 per cent see too much involvement.
