Over 80% of respondents said that the indictment of Yisrael Beitenu's leader Lieberman will not affect the choice of which party they will vote for.

 In 2009 Likud received around 25-30% of the Russian votes which accumulated to 5 Knesset Seats., compared to Lieberman's Yisrael Beitenu's 50% of the Russian Immigrant' vote.
