In 2016 trust in Russian President Vladimir Putin was 71%, but it has tumbled since then on the back of conflicts with the west and stagnating income levels to 31.7% in May, according to the state owned pollster, the Russian Public Opinion Research Centre (VTsIOM),

Despite his glowing press in western media, the anti-corruption blogger and opposition activist Alexei Navalny is only trusted by 1.5% of Russians and remains a political non-entity on the domestic scene.

Likewise, society it-girl and opposition figure Ksenia Sobchak is only trusted by 0.1% of those surveyed.

Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov remains the most trusted figures after Putin.
