Twenty percent respondents see the reason behind the Ukrainian
conflict in “the nationalistic policy of the Ukrainian leadership” and
other 7 percent Russians refer to “the protest of population in eastern part of
the country against new authorities in Kyiv,” sociologists said.

At that, 82 percent respondents believe that armed resistance in
southeastern Ukraine could escalate into a long-lasting civil war, 62 percent
expect it to become Russian-Ukrainian war, and 52 percent suppose it could lead
to world war III, the survey showed.

A total of 56 percent Russian citizens think that Russia supports actively
pro-Russian forces in southeastern Ukraine and 55 percent believe Moscow should
continue to do so, sociologists said.
