    According to a Gallup poll, the attitude of US citizens toward Russia has changed for the better compared to 2015.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The attitude of US citizens toward Russia has changed for the better compared to 2015, with three Americans out of 10 having a favorable opinion of Russia, a Gallup poll revealed on Thursday.

    "After reaching a new low in 2015, Americans' impressions of Russia have recovered somewhat this year, with 30% viewing the country favorably versus 24% in 2015," Gallup stated in a press release accompanying the poll.

    According to the poll, 65 percent of those US citizens surveyed, or five percent less than in 2015, view Russia unfavorably.

    Forty-three percent of US citizens aged between 18 and 34 have a favorable impression of Russia, the highest rating compared to other age groups.

    The highest favorable ratings were recorded by Gallup in 2002, when two-thirds of Americans surveyed had a favorable overall opinion of Russia.
