Germans increasingly see Russia as a more reliable partner than the US, a new study released on Saturday has found.
The poll of 1,004 people by research institute Infratest dimap showed that 28 percent of respondents felt Moscow was a reliable partner, compared to 25 percent for Washington.
The result is the first time the publics trust in the US has fallen below Russia in over a decade. An Infratest survey of public trust in Germanys global partners in June found both countries tying at 21 percent.
France and Britain fared far better in the German publics eyes. More than 90 percent said Paris was a reliable partner, while more than 60 percent said Britain, which has been trying to exit the European Union (EU), was a reliable partner.
The new results align with the findings of an August poll by the Pew Research Center that surveyed the publics confidence in different world leaders.
Whereas 25 percent of Germans had confidence in Russian President Vladimir Putin, only 11 had confidence in US President Donald Trump.

Who won the bloody war, anyway?
Euro-morons who have no sense of history and, generally, no sense.
About fifteen years ago, I had a co-worker that couldn’t understand how we could have any problems with Japan. We would just tell them what to do. Japan’s restored sovereignty was news to him.
If we go to war with Iran - I’m betting the Germans stand with Iran...
Yup, we can use all those troops along our Southern border.
They’re chomping at the bit to re-militarize. We need to get more aggressive with them while we still have a foothold on their soil.
I knew we Americans should have never built the Berlin Wall!
“Japans restored sovereignty was news to him.”
I have a friend that probably would feel the way this guy does.
She doesn’t have a CLUE !!
She belongs to a book club and was telling me about their current book and said,”I didn’t know the Germans were in France during the war.”
I was driving and almost lost control of the car. Unbelievable !!!!!!!
(FYI-—we were both in our early teens when the war ended.)
Willy Brandt would have been happy with an all communist Germany.
To be fair, Russia is probably the only that could save Germany.
Keep importing Muslims idiots.
If Merkel asks Putin nicely, the Russians will no doubt allow the Germans to visit the graves of their ancestors.
Coulda fooled me. (as they're being invaded)...What are they going to have an all moslem military?
I was in Germany from 80 to 84, and I thought MANY younger Germans felt that way, even then. My opinion is, they are not the reliable ally they may have been in the past, if they ever were.
But that doesn’t make sense since the Russians “hacked the election” for Trump ...
Of course, Germans have increasingly been showing just plain stupid behavior importing Muzzlimes by the zillions, even though said Muzzlimes have been attacking German women and others and are a tremendous welfare suck. So what do THEY know about reliability? Would you exactly call Germans, from what we’ve seen, particularly intelligent or reliable?
My mother told me about a gal who took a train, during the war, to the west coast. As the train rolled along near the ocean, the woman looked out the window and said, “That’s beautiful. Is it the Atlantic or the Pacific?”
Its understandable on account of the news they hear everyday. They have no Fox News or Rush Limbaugh equivalents. Quite sad really.
