KOMMERSANT (Russia)

Worldcrunch

MOSCOW - The three things that Russians find the most “immoral” are child abandonment, suicide and homosexuality, reports Kommersant.

In a survey by the Levada Center, a non-governmental sociological research center, a majority of Russians polled also found sexual relationships between non-married individuals to be immoral. That is more than double the number of respondents (21%) who said they thought the death penalty is immoral.

Only 53% of Russian citizens had ethical issues with dodging taxes, while 56% consider paying bribes immoral, Kommersant reports.

The immorality podium: being gay gets the bronze at 62%, committing suicide the silver at 64% and abandoning your child gets the gold at 75%.
