Widespread public support for Russia’s “Robin Hoods”

The story of a group of young men who took to the forest and declared war on corrupt police in the Russian Far East is told here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-11829793. Some are dead, some are on trial … and repeated public opinion surveys have shown that the vast majority of Russians sympathise with them. I’m not always a fan of BBC reporting of Russia, but this piece tells the story pretty much as it has appeared in numerous Russian media.
