As long as as the conflict in Ukraine and sanctions against Russia are on, Putin loses his popularity among russians
President Vladimir Putin's approval rating has reached a record high of 87 percent, according to the results of a survey published Wednesday by the independent Levada Center pollster.
Putin's popularity at home has skyrocketed against a backdrop of increased diplomatic isolation connected with the crisis in Ukraine, where the West claims that the Kremlin's aggressive policies continue to destabilize the nation and inflict casualties.
How many citizens do you think know about the sanctions and what they mean for the general Russian public...my guess would be very few.
And how do you know any of this? Have you actually spoken with any Russian, or are you just assuming based on information presented by bbc, cnn and such?
Do you read any of Russian forums or any media site?
