The Levada Center said its poll -- "The Moral Limitations of Russians" -- posed 10 morality-themed questions and found 61 percent of those responding approved of telling "white lies" for a good cause, compared to 22 percent in a 1992 poll, RIA Novosti reported Thursday.

The survey, taken last month, found 58 percent of respondents considered premarital sex to be acceptable behavior, up from 42 percent in 1992.

Levada said the poll had a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points. No other details on methodology were reported.
