Zerohedge adds that even though the Russian military is heavily committed to the war in Syria, only 5 and 4 percent of people respectively say Islamic extremists are a threat. That’s less than Germany, the UK and NATO which are all labelled enemies by 6 percent of Russians.

Internally, only two percent of respondents consider oligarchs and bankers enemies and one percent think Vladimir Putin is a threat.
