Kremlin Shares Trump's Concerns Over Dangerously Low Level of US-Russia Ties
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The number of Russian citizens who hold a negative opinion of US President Donald Trump has risen to 28 percent, a 6 point increase from the beginning of July, the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM) poll showed Friday.

Last week, the US Congress approved a bill on new sanctions against Iran, North Korea and Russia, and news emerged that Trump intended to sign it. The US president approved the sanctions bill last Wednesday. The legislation targets Russian defense, intelligence, mining, shipping and railway industries and restricts dealings with country’s banks and energy companies.

The number of Russians who favor the US president has fallen by almost 10 percent over the last month, now standing at 18 percent, according to the poll conducted on July 30-31. Most of the respondents, namely 43 percent, according to the pollster, have neutral feelings toward Trump.

The number of Russians who believe that relations between Moscow and Washington are currently "hostile" has increased by 11 percent from the beginning of July, and currently stands at 21 percent. Over one-third (39 percent) of respondents have noticed tensions in bilateral ties, the poll found.
