The world’s perception of the Russian Federation as a threat has decreased – survey

Concern about the Russian threat now ranks 7th among Germans, 6th among the French, and 12th among Italians.

A poll conducted before the Munich Security Conference showed lower views of Russia’s war against Ukraine as a major threat to peace compared to last year’s results. This is stated in the report along with the results of the Munich Security Index survey.

The survey collects the views of respondents in 12 countries on 32 different risks to track trends over time.

These are representative samples of 1,000 people from the Group of Seven and BRICS countries, excluding Russia; for some survey questions, the survey is also conducted in Ukraine. Data collection took place in late October – early November with the participation of reputable sociological companies in these countries. The margin of error is 3.1 percentage points.

In last year’s survey, Russia remained the top risk among the five G7 countries, now only the UK and Japan. For Germans, concern about the Russian threat is in 7th place, for the French – in 6th place, in Italy – in 12th place.

In general, among the G7 countries the threat of Russia was considered the biggest problem in 2022, and in the survey at the end of 2023 it was in 4th place.

There has been a marked increase in concern about possible mass migration due to armed conflict or climate change, as well as radical Islamic terrorism, especially in Europe and North America. Indicators related to the external environment and climate change are among the top three threats in almost all countries.

There has also been a marked increase in concern among the G7 countries about the threat from Iran.

In the United States, cyber attacks are seen as the biggest threat, political polarization in society is in second place, and the threat to China is in third place.

Among the BRICS countries, unlike the West, the perception of Russia and Iran has not changed, but the perception of China has improved.

As we have already written, the majority of Ukrainians (60%) are ready to postpone the acquisition of membership in the European Union so that Ukraine can defend its interests during the negotiations. This is confirmed by the results of a survey conducted on September 4-20 by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) commissioned by the European Union Advisory Mission.

In addition, the KIIS survey showed that the majority of Ukrainians support joining both the EU and NATO, but membership in the North Atlantic Alliance is more important, in their opinion.
