According to a state-run poll:

45 percent of Russians believe “the world is run by some sort of overarching entity that pulls the strings in governments around the globe”.

And the entity? Well, some say it’s oligarchs and prominent business leaders, others say it’s the U.S. or the U.K. or other organizations or religious orders hiding behind the scenes, controlling our monetary systems, and pulling the strings that influence all of humanity.

And it’s not the uneducated who follow this theory. Results showed that it’s the higher educated and higher income earners who think this way.

So what does the other half of Russia think? Well, interestingly enough, 23 percent of them are undecided. What do you think?
