VTsIOM: the majority of Russians believe that the DNI and the LC is no longer Ukraine

The All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIOM) has published data from the next poll on the situation around the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics. Its results do not differ much from similar surveys in 2015 and 2016.
Now, according to sociologists, almost every fourth Russian (24%) believes that Russia should recognize the DPR and the LPR as independent states, and almost every fifth (18%) believes that the DPR and the LPR should be accepted into the Russian Federation. VTsIOM has 4% supporters of the Kiev authorities, and 36% of people who have chosen the position of neutrality.
The prospect of improving communication between Russia, Ukraine and the West still does not affect the attitude of Russians towards assisting the Donbas militia: just a year and a half ago (58%) and today (59%), more than half of the respondents are sure that support should be given and farther.In an exacerbated situation, sending humanitarian convoys from Russia to the Donbass is supported by 82% of Russians, show data from the Sputnik daily survey (this figure increased significantly after a decline in the summer of 2016 to 64%).
The survey data is commented on by Mikhail Mamonov, head of research projects at VTsIOM: “The opinion of Russians about a possible policy regarding the LC and the DPR has settled. Stability of indicators indicates a motivated position. According to the majority of Russians, the DNR and LC are no longer Ukraine - this is the main conclusion of the study.”
