Poll: 31% of Ukrainians support continuing ATO till complete return of occupied territories

About a third of Ukrainian citizens support continuing the Anti-Terrorist Operation in the East of the country till Ukrainian control is fully restored over the temporarily- occupied territories.

As an Ukrinform correspondent reports, this is evidenced by the results of the poll conducted by the Razumkov Ukrainian Centre for Economic and Political Studies.

In particular, 31% of respondents support continuing the ATO till the full restoration of Ukraine's control over the occupied territories in Donbas, while 22% of Ukrainians believe certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions should be granted special status as part of Ukraine. In turn, 16% of Ukrainians wanted these territories to be separated from Ukraine. The pollsters pointed out that 31% of those polled are undecided on this issue.
