The top five leaders also included Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov, who received 3.94 points, and two deputy prime ministers, Dmitry Rogozin, 3.88 and Dmitry Kozak, 3.82.
Compared to the results of the last June survey, Russians began to evaluate more highly the activities of most of the ministers.

At the last place in the ranking was the Minister of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov, who received 2.94 points. Minister of Development of the Far East Alexander Galushka - 3.29 points, Minister of Agriculture Nikolay Fedorov - 3.28 points, Minister for Open Government Affairs Mikhail Abyzov and Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev, who scored 3.33 points, were also among the unpopular members of the government.

The survey involved 1.6 thousands of respondents from 42 Russian regions, its error does not exceed 3.4%.
