Negative views of Russia and Putin on the rise globally

12 July 2014 Last updated at 02:08 BST

Russia's global image is increasingly negative, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center.

This is despite Russians believing that President Vladimir Putin's actions in Ukraine would improve the country's reputation abroad.

Pew Research found that increasing numbers of people around the world held unfavourable views of Russia and its president, especially in Europe and the United States.

And as the violence in Ukraine continues, 60% of people there had negative views of Russia - a huge increase from 11% in 2011.

The BBC's Ashley Semler looks at the results.
