    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Pew Research Center survey revealed that 63 percent of respondents approved of how Putin conducted relations with Ukraine and 73 percent how the president was handling relations with the United States.

    In addition, 59 percent of respondents believe that Russia plays a more important role in the world than it did 10 years ago with 17 percent thinking that it has become smaller.

    The majority of respondents, namely 71 percent, consider the rising prices the most important problem in the country followed by the issue of corrupt political leaders with 58 percent.

    The poll was carried out between February 18 and April 3 among 1,002 Russian adults.
