      Nearly 90 percent of Russians will celebrate
      Easter, each third atheist will bake the Easter cake – poll

      Moscow, April 1, Interfax – Overwhelming majority
      of Russians (87 percent) is going to celebrate
      Easter on April 4, the VTsIOM sociologists say.

      According to a poll conducted all over Russia,
      the number of participants in traditional
      festival activities has increased for the recent five years.

      For example, 71 percent of the respondent plan to
      cook Easter dishes (against 46 percent in 2005),
      while 34 percent are going to have them blessed
      in the church (against 14 percent). Another 42
      percent of Russians are to go and see their
      friends or to accept guests at home.

      The poll proves that majority of Orthodox
      Russians (95 percent) celebrates Easter and this
      feast is popular among followers of other
      Christian confessions (70 percent) and even among atheists (48 percent).

      Three fourths of Orthodox faithful (77 percent),
      over a half of other Christian believers (55
      percent) and each third atheist will bake kulich (Russian Easter cake – IF).
