I'll leave it here, just for information:
Love to Stalin among Russians reached a historic 16-years-maximum
First graph: your realition to... Lenin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin.
Second graph: your realition to Stalin.
Colors: dark green - admiration, green - respect, light green - sympathy, gray - indifference, red - dislike, light red - fear, dark red - disgust and hate, blue - no opinion.
As you can see, Putin is the most loved person: 14% admire him, and almost nobody hate or despise. These are, of course, a bit artificial results, this "love" will not last long after his future resignation.
Other hand, mass rejection of Gorbachev and Yeltsin, as well as growing simpathy to comrade Stalin can not be results of propaganda, these are real people's feelings.

They didn't asked me, but if they did, the answer would be:
Lenin - respect
Stalin - respect
Khrushchev - indifference
Brezhnev - dislike
Andropov - respect
Gorbachev - disgust and hate
Yeltsin - disgust and hate
Putin - respect
