President Vladimir Putin’s approval ratings are near an all-time high – at 80% – after his invasion of Crimea.
Russia’s Ria Novosti reported:

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval rating has reached 80 percent, with a majority of Russians saying the country is heading in the right direction, an independent pollster said Wednesday.
A poll by the Levada Center said public support for the Russian leader rose by 8 percent since Putin delivered an address to parliament on Crimea before the predominantly Russian-speaking region rejoined Russia last week.
Levada said Putin’s approval rating peaked at 85 percent in spring 2008, when Dmitry Medvedev, now prime minister, succeeded him as president.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama’s approval rating is at 45% today 35 points below Putin’s approval rating.
