Georgia on her mind

The Russian Academy of Scientists, kindly folk that they are, has polled the Rodina's citizenry as to which countries they sympathise with or otherwise. I have not been able to access the source data, but have done what I can with figures published in the English language site of Pravda.




It may well be the case that they have a soft spot for the Finns and detest Canadians beyond measure, but working with what I've got, I do feel that we are letting the side down by being less popular than the US. Doubtless the Belarusians and Kazakhs are popular because they are happy to leave the boat resolutely unrocked.

This is not borne out on the ground. The Russians, in general, like Brits very much.

James, I am a bit of a Russophile in my own quiet way, and I suspect the question was more along the lines of 'which governments do you like / dislike', than 'which peoples' etc etc.

Ah, that makes sense.
