Russians are not optimistic about their and the country's future

Closed-ended opinion polls conducted in early November at the request of the Russian presidential administration found Russians tired of the war.



This was reported by the Russian publication Meduza, citing its sources close to the Kremlin. Russians not feeling optimistic about their and the country's future

In October, the media reported that a successful counterattack by Ukrainian troops had reduced the number of those in favour of continuing the war in Russia.

"Meduza notes:

The results of the Kremlin's closed studies are indirectly confirmed by the results of open polls. For example, according to a study conducted in early November by independent sociological company Russian Field, only 19% of respondents expect their lives to change for the better in the near future, while 57% of respondents admitted that news about the war makes them tired. In late July, just over 40% of respondents said so.

"Meduza also wrote that the mood, according to the poll's customers (i.e. the Kremlin - ed.), is not related to the successful counterattack by Ukrainian troops - and the retreat of the Russian army from Kherson. The Kremlin believes that Russians are "tired of war in principle".

Meduza's sources also claim that Russians are increasingly asking questions about the causes of the war, despite the active work of propagandists.
