Half of Kazakhstan residents see Russia’s Prime-Minister Vladimir Putin as the future president of Russia, Tengrinews.kz reports citing the survey made by the Institute of Political Solutions (IPS).

Kazakhstan residents are generally positive about the idea of Putin’s comeback (at least as a candidate). There are more fans of Russian PM in Central Kazakhstan than in any other region of the country: 96.4 percent versus 37.7 percent in the west of the country.

Every fourth respondent is indifferent to the situation in the neighboring country. One forth of Kazakhstan residents replied: “I don’t care about what happens in Russia.” Six percent of the polled residents think that Putin’s nomination for presidency will cause negative consequences for Kazakhstan. Most Putin’s opponents live in the west of the country (10 percent) while there are none of them in the east.

Medvedev told the ruling party congress on September 24 that he would not be contesting the March presidential election and had asked Putin -- his current prime minister and predecessor -- to run in his place. However, Western media expressed concern in this relation. For example, British media consider Putin’s comeback a deterioration in relations with the West. Besides, the media say, 2012 elections will affect relations between Moscow and Berlin, as Angela Merkel’s government is already tuned to support of Dmitry Medvedev and his policy.
