Results that Putin did not order. Russians are pessimistic, apathetic and war-weary – World – News

Surveys based on group discussions were conducted earlier this month in various locations in Russia, including the Far East. The goal was to find out what the local people’s attitude is to the war in Ukraine. The results of a sociological investigation according to one of the Medusa resources showed that Russians do not feel optimistic about their future or the future of the country.

“It’s not about siding with the opposition or completely rejecting a special military operation. But about indifference and apathy. They don’t feel any encouragement, nothing to push them forward,” he said. He added that, according to pollsters, these sentiments are not related to the successes of the Ukrainian counter-offensive and the withdrawal of Russian forces from the Ukrainian Kherson. The Kremlin believes that the Russians are tired of war as such.

In the survey, Russians identified partial mobilization, economic difficulties caused by sanctions, but also, for example, the blocking of the Instagram social network by the Russian authorities, as the “most painful” aspects of the war.

The results of this non-public research basically confirm a public survey conducted by the Russian Field company at the beginning of November in Moscow, in which only 19 percent of respondents said that they expect their lives to change for the better in the near future, Meduza recalled. On the contrary, 29 percent of respondents in the same survey announced that they expect a change for the worse, and 36 percent that their life will not change. In addition, 57 percent of respondents admitted that they are tired of the war, while at the end of July, only 41 percent of people spoke of such a feeling in a sociological survey of the same company.
