Military Review

Levada Center: 81% of Russians believe that today the Russian army is able to protect the country

40
The sociological monitoring service Levada Center conducted a regular survey in which respondents were asked about their attitude towards the state of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The question was formulated as follows: “Can our army now protect the country in the event of a real military threat from other countries?” 81% of respondents believe that the army is able to protect the country from external aggression. The negative answer to this question was given by 11% of respondents.




If we compare the figures of 2016 of the year with those of other years, then 81% and 82% (in 2015 of the year) who consider the army combat-capable - an absolute record with the 2000 of the year. The smallest indicator of those who evaluate the Russian army efficient is in the 2005 year. Then about 52% of respondents gave a positive response.

Representatives of the Levada Center asked another question. He sounded like this: “Is there a military threat of the Russian Federation from other countries?”

65% of respondents consider such a real threat, 28% are sure that there are no threats. The maximum percentage of those Russians who are confident of the threat from one or another foreign state was recorded by the Levada Center in 2015. Then the situation was considered threatening 68% of respondents. The minimum occurred in the 2004 year - 37% of respondents.

Detailed results can be found on the website "Levada Center".

    As for the "military threat", there has never been a period in Russian history without such a threat.
    And our army today is able to continue the traditions of the winners, and this cannot be proud of.

      Oh ... Levada guessed. The people believe in their Army. And he always believed!

        After questioning the brothers, Klitschko said: “Do constant blows to the head affect mental abilities?” “One answered that, glory to Ukraine, they didn’t, and the second didn’t understand the question! recourse

        They can be divided into two categories:
        1. Politically discerning personalities (idiets)
        2. Those who are confident that the authority of our Armed Forces and the "triad" excludes such a danger ...

      I remember when a military reform began several years ago, so much screeching was about the destruction of the Russian army. Many then tried to convince me of this, even people of the military profession. Time puts everything in its place.

        ... I agree completely, just remember ... the recent creation of the videoconferencing system and how many slops were poured ... Syria has shown that the solution is absolutely right ... hi

          I do not believe that the Russian army in its current form is capable of protecting the country. Much more needs to be done.
          Military forces are not enough to protect the country, while the country protected by the people is invincible. (c) Napoleon Bonaparte

      Well, if the aerodynamic quality is 10 (the paraglider has about 9) - then yes, it will work from 6 km high. But at what cost? Paragliders fold in crosswinds, note.

      I would like to learn more about the "slightly out of tone". Even the Foreign Ministry's statement does not look like it, because when necessary, Lavrov expresses himself quietly but clearly.

    I certainly enter 81%, BUT in the article or the schedule is wrong or something is messed up
    "... If we compare the indicators of 2016 with those of other years, then 81% of those who consider the army to be combat-ready is an absolute record since 2000 ..." and look at 2015 - 82%

    Here, ask someone from the members of the forum: "Have you ever participated in a survey ?!" Stopudovo - no! A pimply beaver came out of the office with a signboard "Levada Center" to smoke, counted the passers-by, figured numbers in the dim little mind, ran through the toilet, to the computer and, BAM, STATISTICS !!! Well, try to dissuade me! No.

      .
      It looks like this number includes people like Makarevich. It is not yet known who the notorious "Levada Center" tried to interview more for persuasiveness. At least the bill is not in favor of the "Levada Center" 81% against 8% and those who hamper (liberal swamp) such as Bori Nadezhdin or Stankevich-11%

    There is always a threat of attack. Albeit scanty, but even from aliens. And we are sure not so much in our army as in a people capable of patience and self-sacrifice.

    The graph shows historical moments that could affect the attitude of the population towards the army: 2000 - the arrival of Putin, 2008 - conflict with Georgia, 2015-2016. - Syria, the actions of the videoconferencing.

    The polls were probably conducted among those who do not know the realities of the army and are guided by the official statements of our Defense Ministry. During my life, I had to participate in many exercises in roles from platoon commander to mediator in regiments and formations. And each time the realities were different from the subsequent official statements. Just like in the song about the "beautiful marquise". But there was a lot, and the undermining of equipment with crews, and the flooding of equipment during the crossings that disrupted the deadlines for completing the tasks. And just slovenliness of commanders and chiefs of all levels ... If anyone served, then he should remember the "debriefing" after the exercises with organizational conclusions and the assignment of "orders of holy yabukentiy". From these analyzes and made it possible to say about the readiness or not readiness to repel the aggression, work was carried out to eliminate the identified shortcomings. And the constant checks b / G from the army to the commissions of the MO ... And if a troika was displayed, in most cases the commanders were removed ...
    And what can a simple peaceful layman say? He can only hope for an army ...

      whom did they interview? sofa experts, at my work out of 20 people served two, myself and one more, the rest of the "disabled" are cut off and among friends as well. The question is who will be called upon to happen the third world war. And at the expense of training, when I served (autorot), we went to the shooting range twice and deployed a service station, that's our task. Hope only for those who know how to fight.

    Personally, I believe that the threat of a military attack on RUSSIA exists! And I think that our army is ready to defend our country today !!! Of course, there is no limit to perfection both in skills and in technology, and our army still needs to improve and learn a lot! Well, for this there is every opportunity, well, or almost everything! So here it depends on how well the fathers of the commanders will teach personnel to use both personal weapons and combined arms weapons and technical means! yes
