MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Accession to Russia is supported by 95% of people from the Donetsk and Lugansk republics (DPR, LPR) who are currently in Russia, a poll by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM) showed on Thursday.
Another 3% want the DPR and LPR to become independent states, while 2% found it difficult to answer. No respondent said they would want the DPR and LPR to remain part of Ukraine.
The telephone survey, commissioned by the Russian think tank Social Research Expert Institute, was conducted on September 20 among 537 residents of the DPR and LPR aged 18 and over who are currently in Russia.
On Tuesday, the DPR and LPR, as well as the Russian-controlled parts of the Ukrainian regions of Zaporozhye and Kherson, said that they would hold referendums on accession to Russia from September 23-27.
