Most Russians agree with the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the end of the standoff between Russia and the West, but many think the Cold War did not end in 1989.
According to the poll conducted by the Public Opinion Foundation 82 percent of Russians are aware of the tearing down of the Berlin Wall, and only 13 percent know nothing of it. Fifty-one percent of those interviewed say the destruction of the wall was a good thing and 13 percent said that it was bad. Thirty-seven percent remain undecided about their attitude to the 1989 unification of Germany.
As it comes to the political consequences, 22 percent of Russians think the fall of the Berlin Wall did Russia more good than bad, 18 percent answered that negative consequences prevailed, and 60 percent could not answer the question.
When the pollsters asked if it was true that the fall of the Berlin Wall marked the end of the Cold War 39 percent of those responding agreed, and 33 percent disagreed. Again a large number of people – 28 percent could not specify their views on the situation.
