Mr Corbyn said that in office, Labour would work to halt the "drift to conflict" with Russian Federation, maintain its opposition to human rights abuses by Moscow and maintain Britain's commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending targets of 2 per cent of GDP on defence.
And the survey, which covered the period May 5-10, found that Mrs May was the most prominent politician in the week's coverage, featuring in nearly one-third (32.4%) of news items about the election, followed by Mr Corbyn (21.4%).
Jeremy Corbyn voiced his concerns about Donald Trump's plans to pull out of the Paris Accord on climate change.
Britain's main opposition Labour Party will promise to renationalise rail and mail services and take some of the energy sector into public hands in a shift to the left aimed at winning over voters before next month's election.
"All wars and conflicts eventually are brought to an end by political means", he said.
Jeremy Corbyn has said he would not "automatically" send United Kingdom troops to support a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member which came under attack.
"This week in his leaked manifesto we saw a long shopping list of ideas with no idea at all how to pay for them".
He also said that if his party were to get a majority next month, his focus would have to be on "strengthening global cooperation and supporting the efforts of the United Nations to resolve conflicts".
Despite Jeremy Corbyn claiming the manifesto was "unanimously agreed", reports of infighting over it continue to plague the party, with The Guardian claiming the Labour leader is "braced for a battle over the final version". And pandering to an erratic Trump administration will not deliver stability.

Corbyn insisted that wars that sought regime change in Afghanistan Iraq, Libya, and Syria - and Western interventions in Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen - "have failed in their own terms, and made the world a more unsafe place". Britain's voters head to the polls for a general electi.
"The fact is the war on terror, which has driven these interventions, has not succeeded".
The former Stop the War Coalition chair said he would not pursue a "bomb first, talk later" policy and that current foreign policy amounted to a "recipe for increasing, not reducing threats and insecurity". We'll be back next week to resume our coverage of the general election.
Siding with the US has led to "calamity" in Iraq and Libya "and all the other disastrous wars that stole the post-Cold War promise of a new world order", Corbyn said.

Here are five things we learned from the Labour leader's most comprehensive foreign policy speech since succeeding Ed Miliband in 2015.
"We have just unanimously agreed the contents of (the manifesto), we have amended a draft document that was put forward in the most informed, interesting, sensible discussion and debate in our party".
