About 21 percent of Russians are "seriously worried" about environmental issues in their country, according to a survey published by an independent Russian pollster on Wednesday.

The Levada Center pollster said the figure is four percentage points less than during its previous poll on the issue held last year.

Almost 62 percent of respondents, however, are convinced that polluted environment has a negative impact a person's health.

The survey was conducted on May 23-27 among over 1,600 respondents in 130 cities and towns from 45 Russian regions. The margin of error does not exceed 3.4 percent.
