Democratic style poll

56
On the eve of the site Levada Center The results of a sociological study were published in which citizens of Russia and Ukraine found out about the conflict that is unfolding in the Donbas, as well as how Russians and Ukrainians see the future of the two states. It is emphasized that the survey was conducted twice: the first time was on August 22-25 (in Russia), and the second on September 26-29 (in Ukraine). The total number of adults polled by Russians was 1,6 thousand people, while interviewing residents of 46 Russian regions (data for the Russian Federation).

Before presenting the results of the survey, Levada Center reports that the sociological service of the KIIS (Kiev International Institute of Sociology) worked on a sociological basis, acting on the request of the Democratic Initiatives Foundation.

Democratic style poll


If the names of the funds and services include the terms “international” and “democratic”, then the results of such a study can be predicted in advance, since the polls are conducted in very specific audiences (or published with a “democratic” bias), although everything is displayed as “ independent case study. " However, forecasts are useless here - after all, you can immediately look at the results of Levada and the Ukrainian KIIS and draw your own conclusions.

Question # 1: Do you think that things are going in the country as a whole in the right direction today, or does it seem to you that the country is moving in the wrong direction?

The Ukrainian version is: Do you think the country's leadership is now doing things in the right or wrong direction?

Russians polled by the Levada Center answered this question like this:
65% were in favor of the fact that the country is on the right course, and almost 22% considered that the course of the Russian Federation is not correct.

The Ukrainian audience, interviewed by KIIS, spoke differently about the course of their country:
26% believe that Ukraine is moving in the right way, and 44% believe that this way is wrong. Moreover, if in Russia almost 14% of respondents could not unequivocally answer about the correctness and incorrectness of the path, in Ukraine about 29% of respondents could not characterize the course of the state. 1% of Ukrainians completely refused to answer the KIIS question.

In principle, 1% of Ukrainians who refused to answer can be understood, because today it is not at all clear who should be considered authorities on the “independent” square. Apparently, there are people in Ukraine who soberly assess the situation and understand that the real power in the country is not in Kiev, but in Washington, and whether the right course for this power is to judge not American but American citizens ...

Question two: Do you agree that Russia actively supports the pro-Russian forces in the east of Ukraine?

“Yes” and “rather yes” in Russia 50% of respondents answered (in the Russian Federation, the survey was conducted in August). “No” and “rather no” - 30%. Another 20% found it difficult to answer.

In Ukraine, 74% of respondents (the survey was conducted in September) believe that Russia supports the pro-Russian forces in the east "Square". So do not consider 15%. And 11% could not decide on the answer.

But the question itself sounds somewhat sly. It seems that the authors of the question are trying to deliberately reduce the scale of Russia and unify Russian citizens. Who exactly is “Levada” and KIIS here called Russia? If only the Russian authorities, even there, as we know, is not so simple (sorry for the questionable in connection with certain events turn). One wing quite openly speaks about the need to help Novorossiya, the other is inclined to wriggle and think about “international consequences”. And these two wings clap over each other, which results in the uncertainty that is observed in the Donbass. Moreover, the Russian authorities are far from the whole of Russia ... And somehow it is even silly to argue that all of Russia (from and to) has a unanimous opinion about the support or non-support of forces in Novorossia. A question with a certain "flavor" of provocation ...

When answering the third question, which sounds like "Do you agree with the statement that Russia rightly protects the interests of Russian-speaking citizens in the east of Ukraine?”, 66% of Ukrainians polled by KIIS said“ no ”. They gave an affirmative answer 20%.

Responsibility for bloodshed in the Donbas to Russia (Namely, the next question sounded like this) 17% of the polled Russians and 63% of Ukrainians were laid. Russia is not considered guilty of big blood in the Donbas. 75% of Russians polled by Levada and 27% of Ukrainians polled for Democratic Initiatives.

Judging by the following question from Levada, 26% of Russians are confident that there is a war between Russia and Ukraine. Also consider 70% of Ukrainians. 59% of respondents in the Russian Federation and 19% in Ukraine are not considered to be a party to the conflict in Russia.

16% of Ukrainians said that there could be no talk of any peace in the Donbas until the Ukrainian authorities spread there. 28% noted that they are in favor of peace at any cost. The rest took intermediate positions - mutual compromises and concessions.

As they say, the owner (of the poll) is the master, but this part of the poll is also a bit like a provocation. Why, then, is this question not asked: do you think that the war in the Donbass was provoked by the West in order to slay Ukraine with Russia? Or this: what do you think, will Kiev stop the punitive operation in the Donbas before the new year?

But how can we expect such questions from “democratic” services? For these services it’s important not so much the opinion of the respondents as the presentation of the material itself. At the same time, provocative questions are cleverly disguised by screen issues that are designed to present the research as if it were independent.

One of these screens:

These sociological services were asked from their respondents about how do they see the future of Donbass. In Russia, 40% Donbass is considered an independent state. In Ukraine, only 7%. Part of Ukraine Donbass (on the same or new conditions) see 24% of Russians and 77% of Ukrainians. We are ready to consider the Donbass a part of Russia 21% and 5% of respondents (by country), respectively. The rest found it difficult to give a definite answer.

In general, what did this survey show? He showed that “friends” between Russia and Ukraine continue to drive a wedge, motivating him to have public opinion. Like, what kind of these Ukrainians-they think that Russia is at war with them. Yeah, right now! And vice versa: what are these, these Russians, believe that the Donbass should be independent. Yeah, right now!

For the fat point, the sociological services need to ask the respondents: Do you agree with the opinion that "Muscovites are like knives"?? ..

Once again - in such a survey the opinion is not important to the services, the response is important to the services. It turns out that the desired is achieved in full.

      As a person who regularly orders marketing research, I can confirm that the result depends on who to interview, what questions to ask, etc. That is, the result of the survey is determined only by the honesty of the customer and the contractor.

      But this is not the main thing. The main thing is that before our eyes there is some kind of phantasmagoric fooling of an entire nation! Civilized, intelligent, hardworking people are dipped in hatred and anger. People begin to hate their children and parents, what can we say about hatred of Russia!

      And it is very sad. Nevertheless, I hope that the world will rise from head to foot. Here are just how many lives it will cost and how long it will take ...

          just let’s not speak for everyone. I will express my opinion about Ukraine and what is happening there. The Americans are fighting for their own exceptionalism, that is, to remain so central on the planet. At the same time they are using everything. Here and Ukraine has become one of the mechanisms of this war. I look at what is happening in Ukraine as a disease exalted from without.

        Everything is very simple - "manipulation of consciousness" is now a whole science with its own rules and laws, and it will easily present any event in the right "channel" and provide the "necessary interpretation" of this event. To do this, a simple method of chattering is used: "silence-exaggeration" - that is, "silence" any good side and "exaggeration-any mistake, or" invented and spread to all media "- a non-existent drawback. Here is an example of this: rescued a drowning child. You are a hero in the "normal" sense. But it is quite possible to make a "bastard" out of you, start asking everywhere, but how did the child get into the water? What were you doing there at that time? Maybe you deliberately pushed him into water? Did you really save the child, and did not drag him into the water? Any question is the main thing to make you make excuses. Besides, start printing the following "data": Look, there are witnesses that you were chasing a child with pedophilic desires and he fell into the water . Your family may have been bullying your own children. You 20 years ago had problems with the law. You were seen drinking. You are slovenly dressed. And so nonsense, the main thing is to "sink" your good deed under tons of "crap" and that's it. to For a short time, everyone will forget about your feat and will "litter" your "dirty laundry". This is how the modern machine of duping works, preparing the "ground" for discrediting or bringing the necessary politicians into power, creating "orange revolutions", etc.

        I agree. The number of respondents for such important questions is extremely small (you need 5-10 thousand), then it’s interesting what social groups were interviewed, education and so on ... If collective farmers were interviewed during the harvest (harvesting), then they don’t have time to look at the zombies, they this is answered!

      Such polls are all from the evil one.

      I was surprised by the reputation of this "oracle" by Lyovushka Gudkov that Russian society is not "democratically" developed. For some reason I decided to declare "democratically" without asking normally-minded people, including me. In general, from the same deck, as "Echo of Dermocracy" . the sociological service "Levada Center" was recognized as a "foreign agent" following the results of the prosecutor's check. The department found out that the Analytical Center of Yuri Levada has received 3,9 million rubles from abroad since the end of last year.

      According to the Prosecutor General's Office, which inspected the Levada Center, from December 26 of last year to March 24 of this year, 3,9 million rubles were received from the American Open Society Institute, as well as from organizations from Italy, Great Britain, and Poland. and Korea, Izvestia writes with reference to its sources in the department.

    And why on earth does the Levada Center, which also has funding from foreign sources of dubious origin, have the right to conduct polls in Russia? The results of opinion polls can easily be recognized as information of strategic importance. So: Legally prohibit all organizations that have foreign funding from doing this.

    Why there is no question about how the West blew ....
    Because the people who do such polls (all kinds of democratic initiatives, etc.) are firmly convinced that the West is the ideal of democracy, the last resort of democracy, so to speak. You will still talk with them (with the organizers of the polls, as well as with variegated Germans, hakamads) about the freedom of the Western media!
    Just do not forget that "holy confidence" flourishes among these people on the basis of their own failures, resentments in politics, dissatisfaction with their own position .... mmm ... takskat in the political bom. They don't even need a lot of money from the West, well, another grant, well, an invitation to a couple of democratic anti-Russian gatherings with coffee, champagne and bouters. And somewhere the maximum is in Eastern Europe (Poland, Hungary). Those who were called to Strasbourg finally are considered heroes and are already fiercely envied by other Russian democrats (or beggars?) Who were paid only to Warsaw, for example))))
    The pack in one word, and the pack should not be full before the hunt. Well and still ... who bites the owner’s hand? For this, they can also be rejected, or even put to sleep. All this is disgusting, but ce la vie, as they say

    "He showed that" friends "continue to drive a wedge between Russia and Ukraine,"

    They drive a wedge of course, but if they were taught to hate Russia for 20 years, then I learned to hate them in half a year
    Such an abomination, cruelty did not expect to see from people. I thought only serial killers are capable of such malice.
    How do you read the reports of warming about how they abused the prisoners, I want to cry from horror.

    But this is not the main thing. The main thing is that before our eyes there is some kind of phantasmagoric fooling of an entire nation! Civilized, intelligent, hardworking people are dipped in hatred and anger. People begin to hate their children and parents, what can we say about hatred of Russia!

    What kind of 23 years of independence, this hardworking and intelligent people did not take place as a single nation and country? All smart and hardworking have long left. And the co-workers who come to us to earn money is not an indicator. Firstly, they are not smart, secondly they are not hardworking, and thirdly there are so many marriages after them that you have to redo everything 2 times. I’m telling you as a builder. Where hoch.ly still excelled - I do not know, judging by the sad experience of working with hirelings.
    New Russia was artificially attached to the Ruin, and never coincided in mentality with central, and even more so with Western Ukraine. In Lugansk and Donetsk, people spoke Russian much more clearly than, for example, in the Rostov Region or Krasnodar Territory. Surzhik could be heard very rarely and it was usually the villagers.
    So I don’t feel sorry for people who consider Shukhevych’s hero or do not oppose them. Whatever nationality they were, and wherever they lived: even Lviv, even Kherson, even Moscow. A smart and hardworking people will not go Maidan, and even less will not support the killing of their fellow citizens due to diverging views on the country's structure.

    All of these polls are modeled to manipulate people's minds. Faith must be zero. Moreover, 1,6 thousand respondents are a drop in the ocean in Ukraine, and even more so in Russia.
    The same interviewer, even on the street, if he is a good psychologist, already sees who to contact and with what question, or how to pose a question in order to get the answer he wants.
    All these polls are from the demon, from the evil one ...

    “For a bullet point, sociological services have to ask the respondents: do you agree with the opinion that“ she’s on the knives ”? ..“ This question would be appropriate in the Russian provinces, if we mean exactly the Moscow liberal trash, the foam that Moscow has accumulated from all over Russia. And now she mocks the Russians.

    The answers depend on the wording of the questions.
    There is such a story.
    Two monks, a Jesuit and a Franciscan, were arguing about whether it was okay to smoke during prayer. Each of them wrote a letter to the bishop with a question. And the bishop answered the Franciscan - "no", and the Jesuit - "yes". When they compared their letters, it turned out that the Franciscan had a question "is it possible to smoke while praying?", And the Jesuit - "can you pray when you smoke?"

    It's a shame that the opinion of the Levada Center is often used and referenced by our major influential print media and TV. In fact, Levada carries out intelligence activities collecting information on the domestic political situation in our country and opinions on it in the nearest foreign countries. And during the period of elections or other political actions, he quickly collects by polling info on the situation, if the situation is not satisfactory, then by means of a false poll he organizes disinformation of the population using the Internet and the media. Undercover work.

    Question two: Do ​​you agree that Russia actively supports pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine?

    In my opinion, the provocativeness of the question is also in the vagueness of the wording: what is meant by "active support" - statements by politicians, humanitarian aid, a flow of volunteers, the supply of weapons, the introduction of troops? Since the majority of Ukrainians believe that the Russian army is fighting in the Donbas (the recent video in which Mozgovoy communicates via Skype with the Ukrainian military was very interesting, including in this regard), and the Russians talk as much as possible about sending volunteers and periodically switching on " Voentorg ", it is obvious that it is impossible to compare the answers of the two sides to the question of" active support ".

    But what are these Ukrainians, here in Belarus there are such displaced on the whole head - a dime a dozen. Here is one colleague examines all the events in the post-Soviet space exclusively from the position "Russia did not let anyone go without blood." And at least a stake on his head amuse. So I think: when Poland provokes the Belarusian Maidan (God forbid, of course), will he then blame Russia?

      Shocking a bit. Communicated with the brothers-Belarusians, but did not notice nationalistic trends. Although, probably, the circle of friends is not the same request

        Yes, most likely the region is not the same. I live in Grodno, this is, after all, "Eastern Kresy", here you will hear a lot of everyone. And if two or three years ago they were generally quietly sitting, now they began to raise their heads and open their mouths. It worries too ...

    In principle, 1% of Ukrainians who refused to answer can be understood

    Oh, I belong to this one percent.
    Because I answer evasively.
    According to the old army joke:

    “Comrade Warrant Officer, what were you doing today?”
    - Conducted classes, Comrade Captain!
    - What topic?
    - Star Wars!
    - Yes?! And what were the questions?
    - Of course. Private Pupkin asked if there were extraterrestrial civilizations.
    “And what did you answer?”
    - He answered evasively ...
    - What is it like?
    - Sent nah ..

    About a year ago I watched a program on similar polls and in particular about the activities of the Levada Center. The technologies that they use are laced with American techniques. And these methods in the post-Soviet space do not work, because they are exclusively focused on stupid p.ed.dosov and other Western brothers similar to them.

    1,6 thousand people were interviewed - well, downright amazing sociological sample for multimillion states. The funny thing is that very few people will pay attention to these numbers, the information will just immediately assume an anti-Russian color, supposedly "everyone thinks so."

    Whatever the "custom" polls predict, one thing is clear:
    1. Imbued with Russophobia and zombified for more than two decades by the Ukrainian media, most residents of Western and Central Ukraine cannot be reeducated in the spirit of good neighborliness with Russia, at least shoot ...
    2. Russia should continue its political, economic and military assistance to Donbass with the prospect of creating the Federal Republic of Novorossia on the basis of a phased inclusion in it of all the regions of Novorossia, including those occupied by Ukrainian punishers.
    3. In this difficult period for Russia to confront Western sanctions and the multifaceted pressure of the West on the country's leadership, unity of the people and the authorities on the issue of New Russia, the fight against the Russian fifth column of the West, including liberal Westerners, comfortably accommodated in many corridors of the highest Russian power, are needed more than ever. ..
