No one wants to live in “DPR/LPR”: percentage of pro-Russian citizens in Donbas dropped by 10%
As of today only 5% of population in territories of Donetsk and Luhansk region controlled by Ukraine wish to join Russia and 0% want to live in “DPR” or “LPR”
Senior researcher at Institute of Sociology of Ukraine, Iryna Bekeshkina, claimed this in an interview to “Channel 5”.
“We interviewed people in territories controlled by Ukraine, we observed a dynamic. According to our latest poll there are 0% of citizens who consider living in independent “DPR/LPR”, - said the expert.
Bekeshkina reminded that 1 year ago there were 35% of citizens in Donetsk and Lihansk regions who wanted to be separated from Ukraine: 20% wanted to live in an independent state, 15% wanted to join Russia.
“Currently only 5% of people want to be part of the Russian Federation”, - she added.
Earlier Director at sociological service of Razumkov Center, stated that majority of Ukraine’s population doesn’t support special status for Donbas, which is implied by the amendments to the constitution concerning decentralization.
