Do Russians love Hugo?

Well, not specially. According to the Russian company Medialogija (Lenta dixit), the Venezuelan military caudillo ranks position 37 in the list of most popular world leaders. Hugo is thus much less popular than French president Nicolas Sarkozy (position 16), Kazakhastan dictator Nazarbaev (position 29) and Belorussian dictator Lukashenko (position 33). Position 1, 2, 3 and 4 are for Medvedev, Putin, Yanukovich and Obama.

Ouch, Hugo...that must hurt. You spent billions of dollars on Russian weapons and that is how they like you? You are giving them thousands and thousands of top land in Zulia for them to grow bananas and that is how they appreciate you? Well, on the other hand Russians voted Georgian Jossef Stalin the third greatest Russian of all times. Still: it must hurt.


  1. Wait, Weird Al Yankovik is #3?

    Oh never mind

  2. I know, I know. But then: the Russians got a very weird deal on the gas and oil business very favourable to them thanks to this Yanukovich character, a deal that overturned what the previous government had decided to do. And now Ukraine is closer to I guess that explains it a bit.
    But Chávez is less popular than even Lukashenko after all those billions!
