Russian President Vladimir Putin is losing popular support in the ongoing war with Ukraine.

According to a poll conducted in Russia, support for the war in Ukraine in the country has declined significantly. This situation has led to strong pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin. This figure, which was 57 percent in July, has now dropped to 25 percent. In other words, only 1 out of 4 people in the country supports the retention of Russian troops in Ukraine.

The results of the new survey, conducted in Russia, were published in a report by the Kremlin’s Federal Security Service for senior officials obtained by the independent news site Meduza. Accordingly, the number of people in Russia supporting the war in Ukraine has decreased from 57 percent to 25 percent in the last 6 months.

The fall in support came after Russia ordered tens of thousands of men to be mobilized and sent to the front. Putin tried to quell his growing anger by holding a public meeting with soldiers’ wives last week.

While there continue to be reports of inadequate training and equipment for newly mobilized Russian soldiers, casualty rates among front-line soldiers remain high.

Denis Volkov, head of the Levada Center, an independent non-governmental organization operating in Russia that conducts opinion polls, surveys and sociological research, said: “People perceived the war in Ukraine as something that did not concern them. “Now the risks at the front have increased and the Russians want to start peace talks,” he said.
