According to polls, 78 percent of Russians now believe that Putin is “doing a good job,” compared to 70 percent in February, when the war on Ukraine began.
Despite the economic hardship caused by Western sanctions on Russia, another poll showed that 61 percent of Russians “confidence in the direction the country is going,” the highest level since 2005.
A third poll also revealed that 72 percent of Russians “support the invasion of Ukraine”.
The Russian offensive, which Moscow calls a “special operation” in Ukraine, has the absolute support of the local media, with the Kremlin prohibiting criticism of it in any form.
Over the past months, Russian government-linked channels have been broadcasting pro-war messages, while Russians have been involved in campaigns to fund soldiers on the front lines.
