Russia poses a military threat to neighboring countries, says 76% of the Georgian population, according to a poll by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) for International Affairs.

According to the study, after the outbreak of war in Ukraine in February this year, the number of supporters of expanding economic relations between Georgia and Russia, has dropped sharply - from 53% to 29%. 

28% of respondents believe that the existing economic cooperation with Moscow should be left as it is, while 30% favor restricting it.

According to the authors of the study, support for deeper economic relations with Russia is now the highest among men, ethnic minorities and supporters of the ruling party Georgian Dream.

The survey was commissioned by NDI and conducted by the The Caucasus Research Resource Centers (CRRC Georgia) from July 14 to August 15. In the direct interview format more than 2.1 thousand respondents were interviewed in all regions of Georgia, except Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region. The margin of error of the results is +/- 2%.
