Most Russians want a new assault on Kyiv, but there are nuances

During the survey, it became known that most men are not ready to fight for Russia, despite supporting its aggression against Ukraine.

The majority of Russians surveyed believe that the “special operation” announced by Putin in Ukraine has dragged on – 59% of respondents believe so.

This is evidenced by the results of a survey by the Russian Field service, Kommersant reports.

According to sociologists, a third of the respondents said that it “definitely dragged on”, and 26% – said “rather dragged on.” 28% are convinced of the opposite, and 13% found it difficult to answer. At the same time, 41% of the respondents admitted that they “feel tired” of the news about the war, but the majority (56%) do not experience such feelings.

Also, a third of the respondents said the war would last more than a year, and 18% believed the fighting would end within a year. “Definitely” or “rather” successful for the Russian Federation “special operation” consider 62% of respondents, 19% had the opposite opinion.

Notably, 62% of the men surveyed are not ready to personally go to war in Ukraine, and 29% allegedly do not mind this option. Most often, these are people aged 45-59 years. Citizens of the Russian Federation are in no hurry to support their army financially: 69% of respondents are not ready to give their funds to the needs of the military, and 12% agree to spend no more than a thousand rubles a month on this.

Against the background of the unwillingness to fight, the alleged support for Putin’s possible decision to “start a new offensive against Kyiv” looks personally interesting. 60% of respondents were in favor, 26% were against. At the same time, 65% of respondents would support the dictator’s decision to stop the “special operation” tomorrow with the further signing of a peace agreement. 28% – against. The continuation of the war was supported by 52% of respondents, and the transition to peace negotiations – 38%.

It is reported that a total of 1609 respondents in eight regions of the Russian Federation were interviewed during the telephone survey on July 28-31. The authors of the survey note that under the conditions of the current political regime in the Russian Federation, the results of the study may not reflect the real picture due to the fear of citizens talking about the war.
