In 1992-2014 Russia occupied Transnistria region in Moldova, Abkhazia and South Ossetia in Georgia, annexed Ukraine’s Crimea and launched the war in Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts in Eastern Ukraine. We asked our readers, what country was under danger from Russia the most.

Among the 763 total votes collected in the poll more than one-fourth of participants (25,56%) think that Belarus is most imperiled by Russia, slightly less than one-fourth of the votes (23,86%) were cast for Ukraine. Baltic states were in the third place with 16,65%.


7,95% of our readers think that all European countries are under danger from Russia. Two countries gained more than 5% of votes: Georgia (5,55%), Moldova (5,47%). The whole world is endangered by Russia, 5.24% of poll participants think. According to the poll results, Finland and Kazakhstan are the safest neighbors of Russia with the least votes (3,53% and 3,31%). Other opinions gained 2,88%.

Armenia, Poland and Russia gained 2 votes each as countries imperiled by Russia. Other countries mentioned by our readers were  Spain, Japan, Montenegro, Slovakia, Israel, Romania and “the countries of the future Intermarium” (The Baltic States + Poland + Ukraine).

One comment reads, “There is no country under danger from Russia”, another reads, “All of them“. Some of the comments posted on Facebook concerning the poll:

Dear readers! We need your help. COVID-19 has hit independent media outlets hard, but even more so in Ukraine, where most outlets are controlled by oligarchs. To make matters worse, several English-language media sources from Ukraine have closed recently. And even worse, this comes at a time of troubling government tendencies and amid a pro-Russian resurgence in Ukraine.  Help keep us online and reporting on the most important of Ukrainian issues for you in these troubling times, bringing the voices of civic society to the forefront of the information war. Our articles are free for everyone to use but we depend on our readers to keep going.  We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget and have no political or state affiliation.
