ANTALYA, Turkey (CBSDC/AP) – After spending all day Tuesday in Sochi in talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Secretary of State John Kerry is in Turkey, filling in NATO allies on the substance of those talks.
Kerry and Putin tried to ease tensions that have grown between the United States and Russia over the continuing crisis in Ukraine.
This at a time when relations between the two countries are at their worst in decades.
According to the Russian polling group Levada Center, 59 percent of Russians see the United States as a threat, reports Global Post. That number was 47 percent in 2007.
Of those who said the U.S. is a threat, 31 percent are worried about the possibility of an American invasion and occupation of Russia.
