Analytical Update: Ukrainian Sentiment

RIWI’s National Security Analyst, Laurie Mylroie provides a full analysis on Ukrainian sentiment during Russia’s assault on Ukraine:

“This pattern of Eastern Ukraine dissimilarity in its opinion, and its repetition, corroborates the validity of RIWI’s data. RIWI data reveal that the East is not just somewhat less supportive of Kiev than the rest of Ukraine, it is significantly different, as one might expect. While majority opinion in the East does not actively support the pro-rebel/Russian position, neither are Easterners opposed to the Russian position.”
