USA Today has the details.

Just under half of those surveyed after the U.S. election by VTSIOM, a state-run research center, said that if given the opportunity, they would have voted for the billionaire New York businessman. Only 4% said they would have backed Democrat Hillary Clinton, who took a hard line against Russia during her tenure as secretary of State.

The survey found that about a third of Russians think Trump will likely go on to become one of the best presidents in U.S. history.

“Trump is a huge advantage for Russia,” said Muscovite Gleb Samorukov. “It’s clear Trump’s willing to figure out some of the problems we have between our two countries.”
