Russia’s top enemies (according to Russians): US, Ukraine, Turkey and Poland
Quote:Russians believe their main enemies in the world are the U.S., Ukraine and Turkey, and 62 percent have a poor opinion of the EU, according to a Levada Center poll that measures sentiments towards other countries.

Belarus, Kazakhstan, China, India and Armenia are Russia’s five best friends in the world, according to the poll.

The majority of those polled said they would either probably or definitely oppose Russia joining the EU, and 65 percent said they wouldn’t be concerned if the EU fell apart as a result of the refugee crisis. While many believed Russia’s relationship with the EU hadn’t changed recently (47 percent), 28 percent were convinced relations were getting worse.

Russians were most hostile towards the United States, with 72 percent picking America as a top-five enemy. Ukraine came second, with 48 percent of those polled believing the country to be a foe.

How quickly are the mighty fallen. Only a few years ago Estonia's very existence posed a danger to whole Russian Federation.

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.

Nobody ever gave a fuck about Estonia. I also wonder how the hell Poland made it into the list.

^No one gave a fuck? Big Grin Big Grin

Name another country that has constantly accused Estonia of fascism, apartheid, nazism, racism, human rights violations, discrimination, etc...

Russians see despotic shitholes as friendly countries while civilized, developed countries are reviled? Why am I not surprised?

Yeah, so what? Still nobody cares about a country with like ... 2 tanks and a motorboat? I didn't say we were on friendly terms with them, but an "enemy" you'd give a fuck about is someome who can threaten you. Estonia does so only by playing host to NATO troops from time to time, otherwise the butthurt is unidirectional and it goes Estonia ---> Russia.

Russians really only care about America, China and India on the world stage, everyone else is just a minusculus on the map.

To think that Russia is on equal terms with America or China? oh lol! Russia has a smaller economy than Mexico, Spain, Italy, etc. Russia is a midget, like Putin, has to use thick soles/nuclear bombs to feel big.

Who cares when you can nuke all the world into oblivion and are already covering 1/8 of the world's surface? Literally, who can challenge us except the countries I've named? Small countries, especially the ones who used to be our provinces, will never understand how much a giant, imperial country like Russia doesn't give a fuck about irrelevant statelets on its border. Most of them haven't even existed for most of history, while we were destroying Napoleon and the Ottomans.

I don't say this to be mean, it's just the way it is. Imagine it on par with the Sudan barking at Britain or something.

Thanks for proving to us that Russia is every bit a rogue state as Iran or North Korea. You just occupy a larger land mass.
