It's easy to understand from an Country Email List emotional point of view: no day should be spent accepting war. However, icy reason tells us that what is most important at the moment is not an ethical stance but careful work to mobilize those strata that liberal politicians had long ignored. Only the former "Putin majority" can change the balance Country Email List of power and end the war. This is where the Russian left currently sees its purpose: to work with those sections of the population. Of all the sociological reports devoted to the Country Email List perception of the Russian "special operation" in Ukraine, only one It allows to see the connection between social inequality and attitude towards war.
Despite the common perception in Country Email List Russia (mainly stemming from the dominance of the liberal narrative in the opposition media) that only the well-educated and wealthy minority opposes Putin, while the poor majority remain loyal Country Email List propaganda consumers, the Surveys show that it is the poor who perceive the war most critically. "Low-income people are more concerned about the military operation because they Country Email List expect a further worsening of their material conditions in this regard," the researchers note. Among high-income respondents, 69% said they support Putin's decision (and only 17% reject it). Among low-income respondents.
Only 49% support it (and 31% were Country Email List brave enough to say they don't support the invasion). Undoubtedly, the real level of discontent with the aggression is much higher and will increase. The left wants to demonstrate to Country Email List society, including its working-class and poor strata, that it is not just pro-Western liberals led by the “middle-class opposition” who are against the war. Such a distorted image is only beneficial for the Country Email List Kremlin, which tries to present the current conflict as a clash of "civilizations" between Russia and the West (the constant adversary) with its "fifth column" on Russian territory.
