Most oppose Russian forces

The vast majority of Ukrainian voters oppose Russian military intervention in their country, even in the east and south where large Russian minorities live, a U.S.-funded poll by a Gallup affiliate showed Thursday.

The April 3-12 survey of 1,200 Ukrainians of voting age found a nationwide average of 85 percent against any Russian military intervention. Opposition was predictably strongest in the western and central areas of Ukraine; but even in the eastern regions, 69 percent expressed opposition to Russian troops intruding in Ukraine’s affairs.
