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! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

    This weekend’s protests across Russia puts Putin in a bad spot. Attacking another nation now, might bring larger protests. Grabbing someone else’s land might not now stir up pride, but reminder of what Putin is doing to his own people. With that near 2011 feeling of the protests, Putin must have shelved any plan for new attacks.

      I disagree. Invading and annexing Belarus is precisely what the dwarf needs (or thinks he needs) to bolster national pride. The drug of “Krim nash!” is wearing out and the Dwarfstanians need a new fix. “Belarus nash!” is just what the doctor ordered.
      With time and money running out the dwarf desperately needs a new foreign “success” to distract from the ever increasing problems in Dwarfstan itself, not least the slow and steady crumbling of the economy.

      Spot on. Putin’s aggression stopped in the Donbass in 2014 and remained there. You could add to that Syria, which he originally saw as just taking up air resources, which were largely not committed to Donbass anyway.

      he really wants to carry out more aggressive acts, but he would need to disengage from Donbass and/or Syria to carry out a major action elsewhere and he doesn’t want to do that.

    I vote ” the whole world ” as under threat from the RoSSiya and the Putin. It will take a coordinated response to neutralize this danger. Stomp the Putinator!
