More Ukrainians See NATO as a Threat Than as Protection

Additionally more Ukrainians again see Russia in a positive, rather than negative, light

According to new Gallup poll, 29 percent of Ukrainians see NATO as "protection", while 35 percent see it as a threat. 

Additionally more Ukrainians again see Russia in a positive, rather than negative, light. 37 percent of Ukrainians have a negative view of Russia, but 44 percent have a positive view.

That is even though many people who were polled refused to answer, particularly in the pro-Russian east, indicating they did not feel it safe to do so, and that the actual percentage of people who sees Russia in a positive light is even higher.

The same Gallup poll revealed 67 percent of Russians, and 54 percent of Belarusians sees NATO as a threat.
