I'm sure most of the russians on this forum will most likely support Ukraine, BUT unfortunately most of those in russia who support the annexation of 15% of our country (which occured yesterday) don't really speak English and will not answer you here.It feels wrong for them to decide to play there, for partying and conscription of soldiers to invade another sovereign nation to existing at the same time, with the same people. I'm sure there are many Russians who don't like this war, I am sure of it, but it doesn't seem enough. I would love to hear from a Russian person on how they believe the support to be split, because you can be certain you wont get the honest picture from my US news. It's clear it has a lot of support, I would just like to know the ratio.
I believe the ratio is ~70/30, and unfortunately the amount of "ruscists" is more then amount of "russians". But noone really knows the picture, as those who try to oppose are usually being sent to jail / poisoned by "Novichok" or killed - so these 30% might just not take part in these votings.
As you know, there's no opposition in russia, and if there is, it's most likely hiding somewhere abroad. So nowadays it's hard to oppose the government as they immediately mobilize you as "meat" to go and die in Ukraine under our shellfire.
