The most popular foreign politician among Russians is the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko. This was stated by General Director VTSIOM Valery Fyodorov in an interview to the newspaper “Izvestia”.
According to Fedorov, a positive attitude to the Belarusian leader is because he is perceived as Pro-Russian politician. Moreover, Lukashenko has secured the image of the man who built a stable and dynamic economy. “Many people in Russia perceive it as a role model and believe that everything in Belarus is more tightly controlled,” explained the CEO.
Early in popularity among Russians Lukashenko competed, the former President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, said the head of VTSIOM. However, in his opinion, at the moment, Nazarbayev “retreated into the shadows”.
