Most Russians Think Moscow’s Ukraine Policy Is Fine Despite Sanctions | Johnson's Russia List

(Moscow Times – – Anna Dolgov – February 3, 2015) With the fallout of Western sanctions felt by a vast majority of Russians, one in five think that Moscow should make concessions in its policies toward Ukraine, but nearly seven in 10 believe that their country should continue its course, a respected Russian pollster said Tuesday.

A total of 79 percent of respondents said sanctions have affected their lives, including 34 percent who said they experienced “serious problems,” according to a survey by the independent Levada Center pollster.

Slightly more than one in five Russians, or 21 percent, said Moscow should look for a compromise and make concessions to have the sanctions eased, but another 69 percent said their country should continue its course despite Western measures, the pollster said.

The poll was conducted on Jan. 23-26 among 1,600 people in 134 of Russia’s cities and towns, the pollster said, adding that the statistical margin of error was no more than 3.4 percentage points.

Another poll, conducted on the same dates and released by Levada Center on Monday, indicated that inflation, which has soared amid Western sanctions, has emerged as by far the strongest concern for many Russians.
