In 1990, only five percent of Russians considered the Soviet army the strongest in the world. Nowadays, 32% of respondents believe that the Russian Army, the successor to the Soviet Army, is the best army in the whole world. Forty-nine percent of Russians believe that the Russian Army is on a par with best armies of the world and has all chances to be the first among them.

In addition, Russian citizens are ready to defend the honor of the country internationally, if need be. In the USA, only 43 percent of US citizens are ready to stand up and fight for freedom and sovereignty of the United States.
