41% of Ukrainians Agree They and Russians Are One People

These are the results of a recent poll from Rating Group. 41% agree with Putin’s position, 55% disagree. Not bad, considering there’s now been a generation’s worth of state svidomy narratives. [And considering that Crimea and Donbass were not polled.]

But possibly the most startling result (and certainly one that I didn’t expect) is there there’s essentially zero difference across age groups. 44% of 18-29 y/o’s agree to 42% of 60+ y/o’s, despite declining numbers of self-identifying Russians in younger age groups.

Otherwise, the regional and political party breakdowns are not surprising. Solid majorities in the South and East, amongst adherents of the UOC-MP, and the expected opposition parties (Opposition Bloc, Party of Shariy, etc.) consider Ukrainians and Russians to be one people.

Even so, the fact that even in Western Ukraine, 22% agree with this, as do 10% of Greek-Catholics, 12% of nationalist Svoboda supporters, and 10% of European Solidarity voters, was mildly interesting; it is curious and significant that such people even exist.

They should ask transients/ foreigners who have lived, worked, and/or traveled through both Ukraine and Russia for their opinion.
The Ukies have been blasted with anti Russian propaganda for 5 years now. I would bet that the poll 10 years ago would show a huge difference, and that would favor a closer Ukrainian/ Russian relationship.
Thanks AK and A E.

not accurate—20 years ago in Western Ukraine especially villages, Lvov, even Poltava I encountered xenophobic reactions when I spoke Russian to local people, something not experienced in Kiev, karkhiv, Odessa, Crimea

ukraine has significant Hungarian, Romanian, Russyn and catholic populations that have always considered themselves non Russian, closer to Poland…these polls matter little—even today 2/3 of Ukrainians speak Russian

They call it Ukrainian.
It is as different as Croatian is from Serbian.
That is what they’re doing to you.
It is called Balkanization.
Denying it will only make it happen quicker.
They tested the formula first on us and now it’s your turn. Have you (Russians; assuming you are one?) not learned anything?

Wrong again mcflurry.
Didn’t I tell you I was Serbian, moron?
There is very little difference between what is called Ukrainian and Russian.
Ukrainian is not even registered as a real language.
That’s just Marxist nonsense.
Know I know what you are.
You’re a filthy Ukrop.

Russian Federation is world superpower, and has great future and potential! The new enlightenment era starting from Far East, China as First, Russia will follow,due to its huge size! Ukraine is declining,vassal state,looted by the West…Most of the Ukrainian inhabitants regret the artificisl separation from Mother Russia, and wish to restore close ties! But economically, Russia must reject the looted and destroyed U-kraina!!!
Why should the Russian taxpayers pay for zionazi loots in U-kraina? Let the Ukrofascists starve to death…It’s coming upon them! 15 million already left that vassal state for another countries!!!

this is not surprising—since 2014 US coup 10 million Ukrainians have departed—an estimated 5 million to Russia, others to Moldova, Poland, USA, UK, etc. a disproportionate number of uneducated villagers that speak Ukrainian as a 1st language remain
