68% Russians say they do not want their sons to fight in southeastern Ukraine–new Levada Center poll

Staunton, November 10 Sixty-eight percent of Russians say they do not want their sons to fight in southeastern Ukraine on the side of pro-Moscow militants, according to a new Levada Center poll. Only one in seven – 13 percent – would support doing so, and one in five – 19 percent – refrained from giving an answer.

Those figures suggest that enthusiasm for Vladimir Putin’s subversion and invasion of Ukraine is less deep than many have thought, and another figure, that only 13 percent of Russians accept the Kremlin line that no Russian forces are fighting in Ukraine, suggests that Russians are skeptical of official accounts.  http://www.interpretermag.com/two-thirds-of-russians-dont-want-their-sons-to-fight-in-ukraine-levada-center-poll-finds/
