Latest news Ukraine

The latest Levada poll reveals that since April 2022, the support of Russians for war against Ukraine remained relatively stable. In August, 46% of Russians “definitely supported” the war, 30% “rather supported,” 8% “rather opposed” and 9% “definitely opposed.”

According to the results of the survey, the greatest support for the actions of the Russian army in Ukraine is observed among the older age group: 85% approve.

On the question of whether it is necessary to continue the war or proceed to negotiations, Russian society is divided almost equally: about half of Russians (48%) believe that it is necessary to continue military operations, slightly less (44%) – that peace negotiations should be started.

A third of respondents believe that people like themselves are morally responsible for the deaths of civilians and destruction in Ukraine: 10% believe that they “definitely are,” 23% – “are to some extent.”
