President Vladimir Putin’s rating rose to its highest in four years of 86% of Russians who say they are happy with the president, according to independent pollster the Levada Center in October, up from a brief dip to 72% a month earlier. Only 14% said they disapproved of the president and 1% were not sure.

Approval of the government ticked up to 50% with 49% disapproving its work. The majority of Russians have disapproved of the government’s work for most of this year.

However, the ratings of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev jumped by 9 percentage points to 57% in October, up from 48% a month earlier, his best ratings since February. 

And Russians seem to be increasingly confident that the economy is coming out of the crisis, with 56% believing the country is going in the right direction, up from only 50% a month earlier. Another 26% thought it was going in the wrong direction, down from 32% a month earlier. But a rather large 18% and 19% are not sure in the last two months.
