Behind the Poll:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened military action against NATO for expanding eastwards toward Russia’s borders. Ukraine is a particular flashpoint. Putin emphasized that America and its allies “must understand that we have nowhere to retreat further.” 

He also said that Russia would “take adequate military-technical response measures and react harshly to unfriendly steps” from NATO but made clear he would prefer diplomacy. 

With tensions building, do you think America is under threat from Russia’s activities, or has the threat been exaggerated?
