Residents of the occupied Donbass are losing confidence in the Russian policy towards the "DPR". This was reported on the Patriotic forces of the Donbass website, which cites a survey of the residents of the occupied territory.
47.4% answered affirmatively to the question whether they trust the Russian policy towards the "DPR". The result is almost the same compared to the last measurement of public opinion. At the same time, 41.3% of respondents negatively assessed the contribution of the Russian Federation to the current situation. A year ago, only 14.3% answered negatively to a similar question. Such gains to the number of those who do not trust the Russian policy was due to those who couldn’t make up their mind a year ago. In 2016, there were 37.6% of such respondents, and in 2017 most of them decided to answer negatively.
The survey, published on the website of the notorious terrorist Oleksandr Khodakovsky, was allegedly carried out by the Centre of sociological monitoring Initiativa. It is alleged that the survey involved 507 men and 493 women. The reliability of its results has not been proved.
