Moscow, April 15, Interfax –

Nearly a quarter of Russians – 23% – believe that there should be no restrictions on euthanasia as a form of assistance to terminally ill patients wanting to voluntarily end their life and that the practice should become common, while another 36% would support allowing euthanasia with serious restrictions, a poll has shown.

At the same time, 28% of Russians are strongly opposed to euthanasia and believe the practice should be criminally prosecuted, according to a poll of 1,600 respondents conducted by the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM) at 153 communities in 46 regions of Russia on April 1-2.
