It can’t be a real poll, can it?
Why do the Ukrainians care about controlling the Donbass?
I guess it has to be understood that Zelensky shut down all opposition media, and the media that is allowed to operate in the country lies on a scale that doesn’t even seem possible, claiming that Putin’s goal is to kill everyone in the Ukraine.
But people can see Zelensky out there saying that his own goal is to “take Crimea.”
It seems like all Ukrainians should see clearly that this war has nothing to do with them.
Ukrainians are almost evenly split on how to proceed in the conflict with Russia, local media reported on Sunday, citing a survey conducted in November by the Rating group.
According to the results of the poll, 44% of respondents said it was important to look for compromise in negotiations with Russia and that other countries should be brought into the process.
At the same time, 48% of those polled were opposed to any negotiations with Moscow, and insisted on continuing hostilities until Kiev retakes full control of the territories it has lost.
The results indicated a marked downturn in the number of Ukrainians who support prolonging the fighting with Moscow. In similar polls conducted in July and February, negotiations were backed by just 35% of respondents, while 60% were in favor of prolonging the conflict.
In the latest survey, a compromise was mostly supported by people between the ages of 18 and 35 from the eastern part of Ukraine. Most of those who supported continuing the fighting were between the ages of 36 and 50, and live in the western half of the country.
A similar poll cited by Bloomberg last month also suggested there was a “growing minority” of Ukrainians who believe territorial concessions to Russia are inevitable in exchange for peace.
The poll results come after Kiev’s much-touted summer counteroffensive failed to result in any meaningful territorial gains. According to the latest estimates reported by Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, as of early December, the campaign had cost Ukraine over 125,000 troops and more than 16,000 heavy weapons units.
Concerns have also increased in Kiev that financial and military support from its Western backers could soon dry up as they grow weary of the conflict and shift their focus towards the recent escalation between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza.
The Gaza thing is what definitely killed the Ukraine war. They were running out of men, but they could have held out for another year, and then after the election, the US could have sent in Polish and Romanian troops backed up by American special forces.
It’s really the funniest thing in the world that American foreign policy is defined by two groups of Jews arguing over which wars we’re going to fight.
