About 90% of respondents said that Ukraine should not pay any compensation. And only 6% stated that Kiev needs to “compensate” for the loss of the Crimean peninsula.
One more question from VTsIOM specialists concerned the attitude of Russians to the subject of international recognition of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation. 69% of Russians polled by phone (from 1200) said that such recognition is considered important. For 28% of respondents, it doesn’t matter whether someone recognized Crimea as an integral part of Russia or did not recognize it.
Recall that a few days ago, the President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman said about the possibility of payments for Ukraine from Russia "for the Crimea." According to Zeman, the payment could be made in cash or energy. In Ukraine, this proposal was rejected. And the activists brought a goat to the embassy of the Czech Republic in order to express their opinion on the initiative of the head of the Czech state.
