According to Gallup, polling in 2010 in 104 countries in the world showed Armenia to be one of the most pro Russian countries. Around 75% of those asked support Russia's political and economical course and only seven percent of the Armenian population object to Russia's movements. In Georgia, Moscow's policy is supported by a mere 6%, whereas 80% are against Russia's position. Only 54% of the Azeri population was pro Russian whereas 19% were opposed.

Armenia and Russia are strategic partners; Russia is the biggest investor in Armenia. A Russian army base is located in Armenia and there are serious ties between the two countries.
