Latest news on the war between Russia and Ukraine

MADRID, Sep. 3 (.) –

The president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, has reached an approval rating of 81 percent this week, according to a poll carried out this Friday, where the confidence of Russian citizens increases after six months since the invasion of Ukraine.

The survey, conducted by the Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM), has indicated that support for the president has increased by 13.9 points since February 20, four days before the start of the war in Ukraine, when he had 67.2 percent approval.

The Russians would thus be supporting Putin’s position during the invasion of Ukraine in a very similar way to when the Russian annexation of the Crimean peninsula took place in 2014 and at which time the Russian president exceeded an approval rating of 80 percent.

On the other hand, up to 62.5 percent of the participants in the latest survey -in which 1,600 respondents from at least 80 regions of the Russian Federation have contributed-, have been positive about the performance of the Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov has 33 percent approval, while Just Russia party leader Sergei Mironov has 31.7 percent support.

During the first months of the pandemic, the Russian president reached 73.9 percent popularity, although for ten months he has remained below 70 percent. Likewise, in 2008 Putin reached 85 percent support, the highest number of support he has ever achieved, according to the Lavender Center, responsible for the 2014 survey.
