Ukrainians loyal to involved in the DNI and LC, but have not committed serious crimes

The majority of Ukrainians are also against loyalty to so-called leadership of the breakaway “republics”.

Almost 60% of Ukrainians do not support the idea of a complete Amnesty to citizens who participated in the conflict in the Donbass on the party of separatists. This is evidenced by the results of the study GfK Ukraine.

In response to the question: No Amnesty – everyone should be involved in otvetnoi by law, the following results are obtained:

• totally agree 35.7% of respondents

• more likely to agree 16,2%

• rather disagree, 30.8% of

• absolutely do not agree 36,1%

The position of Amnesty only for those who participated in illegal armed formations on not

controlled territories and not made seryoznyh crimes, for example killings of civilians, abductions, rape has more support.
