Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The majority have a pretty good name recognition, just not a positive one. I think the general sense is that politicians from Yeltsin's time should go; at the same time at the moment neither Duma (parliament) nor the Government enjoy high approval ratings, and that reflects on number of politicians.

Some of the ratings are managed to keep them lower. Say, when Rogozin (Rodina) became too popular, his party was denied elections in few regions and was quickly labeled as a "fascist" in the press.
