I’ve seen similar numbers before but here is a fresh reminder as to where we are from the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center:
“73% agreed that America was Russia’s number one enemy”
“82% of the respondents supported the idea that the criticism of foreign mass media towards Russia’s President Vladimir Putin could be considered as an attempt to destroy the country and to make it fall apart.”

The only conciliation is that the Public Opinion Research Center is a state funded agency and thus is likely to generate figures in line with what the party wants. Judging from the number of “patriotic” ribbons they are not far from truth however.
