Two-thirds of Russians believe that the USSR could have claimed victory in the Great Patriotic War without the help of the Allies. This is evidenced by the results of a survey conducted by the All-Russian Center for Studying Public Opinion.

“67% of those polled are convinced that the Soviet Union could have claimed victory in the Second World War without anyone else’s aid. The opposite opinion is shared by 27%,” the report says.

Respondents named the key such allies of the Soviet Union at the time to be the USA (50%), England (43%), and France (27%). However, in their opinion, the victory over fascism was mainly the merit of the Soviet state (95%), whereas the majority of Russians assess the contributions of other countries to be insignificant. 

The survey was conducted on June 11th-12th and involved 1600 people.
