Russia war fears: 'Hardly popular' Putin may fail to win support for Ukraine clash

0


Opposition politician Alexei Navalny was jailed upon re-entering Russia on January 17 this year, sparking outrage and protests.

Mr Putin’s approval ratings have remained at 64 percent, according to a Levada Centre poll in February – but have dropped considerably from 2014’s 83 percent, GALLUP suggests.

Comparing Mr Putin’s popularity in 2014 to now, Ms Lutsevych said: “Unfortunately the annexation of Crimea was popular among the Russian public, but the open military conflict with Ukraine with direct incursion into a new Ukrainian territory is hardly popular in Russia.

“Russians are also tired of this International adventurism of Russian troops being deployed in Syria – to some of their proxy groups being in Venezuela and in Africa.

“So, the question is whether he will be able to achieve it, and to achieve this is quite legitimate.”
