    71% of Russians believe ethnicity is inherited from the parents at birth, while 24% believe that a person independently and consciously determines his/her own ethnicity.

    A holdover from the Soviet era, when it was possible to list an ethnicity different from the actual given ethnicity. There’s also the matter of the Soviet census offering many different choices, as well as folks of a (for lack of a better term) mixed background or backgrounds, having to choose one ethnicity over the other.

    How many people listing themselves as ethnic Russian have 1/4 or more of another ethnic background of backgrounds? That same question can of course be asked regarding other ethnic groups as well.

    The attitude to the Jews better than the attitude to the Ukrainians, and the attitude to the Chinese is the same as the attitude to the Chechens? Strange result

  3. melanf says:

    The survey was conducted among several dozen people and the” distribution ” of the surveyed people is very doubtful (probably the surveyed group is not representative for Russia).

    Likely on this strange (if not absurd) results

    Ask author, lol. ^_^

    A promising statisctic slice otherwise, but it`s not nearly enough.

  5. “Russian family only” doesn’t mean exactly that. They will take me.

    May depend on region. In Moscow they probably will, in glubinka debatable. Also you`d better know at least some of the language.
