Russian President Vladimir Putin is quite popular in his home country.
The Russian leader enjoys a nearly 90 percent approval rating according to a nationwide poll published Thursday, NBC News reports.
Pollsters in Russia credit his high ratings to military moves in Syria.
"Such high approval rating of the president of Russia had to do mostly with the events in Syria, [and] Russian airstrikes on terrorist positions," VTsIOM said on its website.
The poll surveyed 1,600 people and had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
