More Russians support negotiations with Ukraine than those who are for war
The share of Russians who favor negotiations with Ukraine reached 48%, surpassing for the first time the share of those who want the war to continue, which is currently 39%
This is reported by the Meduza publication, citing the results of a poll conducted by the Russian Field research group, which was joined by more than 1,600 people.
It is noted that the continuation of the war is more often supported by men and respondents aged 45 and older, who are usually financially secure.
According to the survey, 74% of respondents supported Putin signing the peace agreement "tomorrow." This figure was higher only after the start of mobilization in the fall of 2022, when 75% of respondents supported the signing of a peace agreement.
Despite this, Russians didn't agree on what a peace agreement should include. 10% were in favor of "returning to peaceful life, ending the bloodshed." Other participants were divided into many groups, including Ukraine's surrender (6%) and a return to the 1991 borders (3%).
In addition, 56% of respondents believe that Russia is conducting the war successfully, while 25% believe that it is not.
- Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba responded to calls for negotiations with Russia and said that Ukraine would not fall into this trap.
