Russians Believe Their Country Is Respected

Two thirds of the Russians believe the rest of the world fears and respects their country, according to a new opinion poll conducted by the state-run pollster Public Opinion Foundation.

      According to the poll, 61 percent of respondents said Russia is respected across the planet, and 63 percent think the world is still scared of the former Cold War superpower. On the contrary, 28 percent of respondents see no respect, and 27 percent are sure Russia cannot scare anybody in the world.

      Almost half of all respondents, or 48 percent, believe that the global attitude toward Russia is “good overall,” while 34 percent report a negative outlook. Russian people are also optimistic about Russia’s global influence - 48 percent are convinced it is growing.

      However, according to an annual Gallup poll, Russia came out as the least popular of the world’s five top powers. The most popular is Germany, the other top powers are China, United Kingdom and the United States.
