Russian census reveals mistrust

Second survey since collapse of Soviet Union hampered by threats of violence.

    Russia is conducting only its second national census since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

    It will provide details of the number of people living in the country, their background and location.

    More than 600,000 census-takers are gathering the details.

    But their job is being hampered by threats of violence and an atmosphere of mistrust.
