Over the past year, according to the "Levada Center", Russian citizens' attitude towards Kazakhstan and China has markedly improved. China for one has moved into the top five friends group.
Russians consider Latvia to be the most hostile country. Such is the opinion of 49 percent of the respondents. It is followed by Georgia, Lithuania, USA and Estonia. There has been no change in Russia's top five foes over the past year, notes the "Levada Center".
