The final of the Eurovision song contest this year was watched by over 16% of Russians — twice less than two years earlier, and opinions about the objectivity of assessments of performances not held in the final of the Russian participants of Yulia Samoilova were divided almost equally, the survey showed the all-Russia centre of studying of public opinion (VTSIOM).

Samoilov has not passed the final of «Eurovision-2018», which this year took place in Lisbon. The winner of the competition was Israeli singer Netta Barzilai.

«In our country, the share of viewers (16%) of the final of the song contest «Eurovision» in 2018, held without a representative of our country, is significantly lower than the figure two years ago (38%)», — stated in the materials of the survey, which is available to RIA Novosti.

More spectators were women (21%) and people older than 60 years (24%). Less interested in the final competition, according to VTSIOM, has caused men and respondents in the group from 35 to 44 years (9%).

The name of the contestant, who represented Russia in response to the open question accurately called, more than a third of respondents (36%). «The issue of the objectivity of assessments of the Russian singer the opinions of our fellow citizens disagree: 28% believe the judging is fair, 26% — no,» — stated in the study.

However, young people are more inclined to justice assessments of her performance – an objective they are called 39% among the youngest respondents (18 to 24 years). In General Russians tend to believe the audience voting on «Eurovision» more objective than the judges ‘ scores (41% vs 32%, respectively).

Head of political analysis and consulting VTSIOM Mikhail Mamonov believes that the reduced interest in the competition among the Russians there are two reasons.

«On the one hand, the situation with the ESC was overheated. In fact the participation of Yulia Samoilova was no effect of novelty. The situation was experienced a year ago. In these conditions, to promote interest in the contest, participation Yulia is very difficult. On the other hand, the bad performance Samoilova dramatically lowered current interest,» the expert explained.

Samoilov was supposed to represent Russia last year, but was unable to get to the «Eurovision-2017», because the security Service of Ukraine, which hosted the competition, forbade her entry to the country because of the performances in the Crimea.

A nationwide survey «polls-Sputnik» was held on may 14-15 2018, among 2 thousand respondents aged over 18 years. Survey method – telephone interviews, the statistical error does not exceed 2.2%. In 2016, held similar housing survey.
