Support for Russia in war shrinks among Russian-speaking Latvian population

Support for Russia in Ukraine in the Russian-speaking environment in Latvia has decreased in April, according to a survey conducted by the research center SKDS.

SKDS Director Arnis Kaktiņš said May 2 on Twitter that support for Russia by the Russian-speaking population of Latvia has fallen from 20% to 13% since March. On the other hand, support for Ukraine in this group has increased from 25% to 30%.


Like before, more than half are undecided. 47% of Russian-speaking respondents say they do not support either side, while 10% indicated it is “hard to say”.

On the other hand, among respondents whose family language is Latvian, uncertainty has reduced and the number of Ukraine supporters has increased. Namely, in March, neither side was supported by 10%, while in April 8%. On the other hand, support for Ukraine increased by two percentage points, from 87% to 89%.
