MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Most Russians who think that the Minsk agreements are not observed in Donbas blame the Ukrainian authorities for this, a poll by the Russia Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM) said on Tuesday.
A little more than half (53%) of respondents think that the Minsk agreements are not observed. Thirty-three percent of people are confident that Kiev and Donbas observe the truce.
Of those who consider the agreements not observed, every fifth person (21%) says both sides are guilty, 68% blame the Kiev authorities, and 2% of respondents think that Donbas militia are the ones violating the ceasefire.
Around 1,600 people were polled in 46 Russian regions on February 28 - March 1. The margin of error does not exceed 3.5%
The Minsk agreements were signed in February 2015. They envisage ceasefire in Ukraine’s south-east, heavy weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local elections in Donbass and constitutional reform in Ukraine.
