Almost 40% of Russians do not believe that global warming exists

Almost 40 percent of Russians think that global warming is a fabrication and subject of speculation, according to results of a poll conducted by the Russian Institute VTsIOM.

A total of 39% of respondents said that “global warming is a fictitious problem and the subject of speculation for those who want to exploit the innate mankind’s fear of natural disasters”.

More than half of respondents (51%) said that global warming is a serious problem that requires urgent resolution.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in early July that his country would honor the international agreement on climate change after his US counterpart, Donald Trump, said the US would withdraw from the deal.
