MOSCOW, July 11. /TASS/. As many as 67% of Russians believe that a ‘one world government’ does exist, whereas back in 2014 that figure stood at 45%, the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Center said in a statement on Wednesday.
However, 24% of the poll’s participants denied the existence of such an institution (compared to 32% in 2014). The share of those who believe that a ‘one world government’ does exist is highest (70%) among those aged 35 years and over, while 52-57% of young people aged between 18 and 34 years share this view.
One-third of those who think that a group of global power brokers is governing the entire world failed to provide facts to validate their stance. On the other hand, nearly half of their opponents (45%) also could not support their view.
Most of those surveyed (74%) think that this ‘one world government’ holds a hostile attitude towards Russia (up from 57% in 2014). At the same time, only ten percent believe that the activities of the ‘one world government’ are in line with Russia’s interests (compared to seven percent in 2014).
When asked about who is included as members of this one world government, Russians pointed to oligarchs and financiers (23%), high-ranking US officials (eight percent), politicians and heads of state (six percent). Two percent said that Vladimir Putin was a member of the so-called one world government and another one percent named US President Donald Trump.
The nationwide poll involving 2,000 people was conducted on May 29-30, 2018. The margin of error does not exceed 2.2% at the 95% confidence level.
