    MOSCOW, April 1 (RIA Novosti's Nikolai Zherebtsov) - Fifty-five percent of Russians do not think Russia faces the danger of an authoritarian, antidemocratic regime.

    These data were distributed Thursday by Russian Public Opinion and Market Research (ROMIR Monitoring), an independent sociological service. The data were received during a regular all-Russian poll of 1,600 adult respondents held in 107 cities and rural populated localities.

    The poll was carried out in mid-March after Vladimir Putin won a landslide victory at presidential elections, appointed the new prime minister, and the Russian government was almost formed.

    Analysts say that such a large number of Russians expressed confidence that authoritarianism won't be established in the country despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of mandates were received by Mr. Putin's supporters - United Russia party faction members in the State Duma.

    Some foreign media said all this will only lead Russia to authoritarian power. Only a third of all respondents share this opinion.
