This chapter analyses and compares the results of the 2013 and 2014 NEORUSS surveys. It finds that attitudes regarding such typically ‘nationalist’ issues as ethnic pride and ethnocentrism had changed very little after Russia’s annexation of Crimea–possibly because Russians had scored high on these issues already prior to the Crimean annexation. What really changed was support for the regime in general and for President Vladimir Putin in particular. To a greater extent than before, respondents now expressed the view that Putin was the right man to tackle all kinds of nationalist challenges to the state and in society. Thus, rather than the typical ‘rally around the flag’-effect, the chapter finds what the authors call a ‘rally around the leader’-effect.

Keywords:   Crimean annexation, ethnic pride, ethnocentrism, ‘rally around the flag’-effect, ‘rally around the leader’-effect, Vladimir Putin
