Russia, Putin Held in Low Regard around the World. Pew Research Center. Bruce Stokes. August 5, 2015.
Outside its own borders, neither Russia nor its president, Vladimir Putin, receives much respect or support, according to the survey. A median of only 30% see Russia favorably in the nations outside of Russia. Its image trails that of the United States in nearly every region of the world. At the same time, a median of only 24% in the countries surveyed have confidence in Putin to do the right thing in world affairs, and there is far less faith in the Russian leader than there is in U.S. President Barack Obama.
