For Ukrainians, it’s 3% higher than half a year ago, while for Russians it’s almost unchanged.

The share of Russians who would prefer more isolated relations with Ukraine with stricter border control and the visas and customs in place has fallen from 20% to 14% since February 2012. A similar indicator for Ukraine dropped from 13% in February to 11% in September.
