Seventy-five percent of Ukrainians consider Ukraine the successor to Kyiv Rus, and fifty-five percent oppose Russian President Vladimir Putin’s thesis that “Russians and Ukrainians are one people.”

This is evidenced by results of a survey conducted by the Sociological Group “Rating”, Ukrinform reports.

“Seventy-five percent of respondents consider Ukraine to be the successor to Kyiv Rus, eight percent – Russia, nine percent do not believe that either country is the successor. For all age groups and most electorates, the successor of Kyiv Rus is Ukraine. However, less than half of residents of the east and voters of the Opposition Platform, Murayev and Shariy parties share this view,” the statement reads.

The poll was conducted by the Sociological Group “Rating” on July 23-25, 2021, among the population of Ukraine aged 18 years and older in all regions, except for the temporarily occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas, via Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews.

  • 55% of citizens in Ukraine do not agree with the thesis of Russian President Putin that “Russians and Ukrainians are one people”. This is evidenced by the results of a survey conducted by the Rating Sociological Group during July 23-25, 2021.

    The majority of the respondents (55%) did not agree with the recent statement of Russian President Putin that “Russians and Ukrainians are one people who belong to the same historical and spiritual space”, 41% agree with this.

  • “fifty-five percent oppose Russian President Vladimir Putin’s thesis that “Russians and Ukrainians are one people.”

    How to twist the truth Russian style. In Russian 40% is larger than 55%. This is the headline from a TASS article.

    “Over 40% of Ukrainians think that Ukrainians and Russians are one people — opinion poll”

    Here is the link to this BS. Luckily I can only copy the link.

    • I would also say they were never one people because the Moskali have never liked rules. But…
      I guess you could say, technically, they WERE one people because the Moskali were in Kyivan Rus territory but they couldn’t stand the leadership that prevented them from their habitual criminality and banditry.
      So if you think 800 to 1,000 years back, they were, but just outcast. I’m certainly no expert but it seems to me that the Moskali first showed their true colors during the Mongol invasion of the 13th century and started licking their boots clean while the Golden Horde burnt Kyiv to the ground.

    Those, who think that Ukrainians and Ruskies are the same people are a dying breed. They are mostly Soviet-era people, kicking the bucket soon. One day, those who know that the two peoples are not the same will reach over 90%.
