Russians changed their attitude to the West – the EU and the USA, says the survey released by Levada centre think-tank. In January 2015, 81 percent of Russians expressed their negative attitude to the United States; in January 2016, the index lowered down to 65 percent.
The number of EU haters in Russia also decreased (71 percent in 2015 against 58 in 2016).
The attitude of Russian respondents to Ukraine actually didn’t change (64 percent in January 2015 lowered to 59 in January 2016).
The poll was conducted from January 22 to January 25, by the Russia-wide representative sampling among residents of urban and rural areas in 48 regions of the country.
