Poll: 73% of Russians View the US as Aggressor

Almost three-quarters of Russians view the US as an “aggressor” seeking world domination, according to an opinion poll released by Levada Center polling agency.

The survey published on Wednesday indicates 73 percent of respondents agreed that the United States was “an aggressor trying to take control” of all countries in the world.

Only eight percent agreed that the United States was “a defender of peace, democracy and order,” while 19 percent said they were undecided.

The poll’s findings come despite efforts by US President Barack Obama to mend relations with Russia.

Russia and the United States are currently negotiating a new nuclear disarmament treaty to succeed the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) which expired in December, but have yet to reach a final accord.
