MOSCOW, July 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Half of Russians want the government to support Ukrainian refugees and help them settle in the country, a state-run pollster reported on Friday.
Some 40% of respondents said that refugees should return to Ukraine when the ex-Soviet republic returns to normal life, the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM) said.
Meanwhile, four percent believe that Russia should stop receiving refugees and send those who have already arrived back to Ukraine.
Only fourteen percent of respondents said they had helped Ukrainian refugees with donations and humanitarian aid, the pollster said.
Others complained of the lack of money (34%) or information on ways to help refugees (26%).
The poll was conducted on July 12-13 among 1,600 people from 130 cities. The poll's margin of error was 3.4%.
