Why do Russians still back Putin on the invasion of Ukraine? | DW News



When the war started, Putin aimed at a swift victory. 100 days later, Russia has had to withdraw, regroup and focus its attacks on the East. When the invasion started, some anti-war protests emerged in Russia. Now, these voices seem rather silent. How is Putin selling this as a success to the Russian people?
There’s been a lot of speculation about Putin’s health in recent months. Unconfirmed reports suggest he may be suffering from cancer or Parkinson’s disease. Is there anything to it than just rumors?

  1. If Russian and Donbass citizens support own country and own president what's wrong with it? We know very well what ukronazi doing with Donbass during 8 years and we know who they are and it's very dangerous just to leave it and not to do anything.

  2. Interesting that Russia always claims to be the victim and the rest of world is wrong. Denazification should start at the top with Putin and his ex-soviet mobsters.

  3. Same way Americans support America's wars. Same way Europeans support NATO wars or " European military alliance " against sovereign countries.

    Name me one non European country that has attacked US or European countries.

  4. Why do Americans still back all of its POTUS for having hundreds of military bases across the world and being involved in every single wars since WW2? The same reason is for the Russians who still support Putin.

  5. Simply because they're afraid they'll either be fined, jailed, shot, poisoned, killed and then chopped up and put in a suitcase etc etc. Putler is a murderer, plain and simple.

  6. Because dictators always give wrong information and lie to their people so Russians don't know the realities about the war because Putin is cheating the people and people don't know so many Russians dead in Ukraine war just because mind of Putin and the way he thinks is from 50 or 60 years ago

  7. 1.4 billion chinese like Putin.
    1.3 billion Indians like Putin
    90 million South Americans Like Putin.
    144 million Russians like Putin.

    Putin is looked at as the Leader willing to challenge the USA green fist.

  8. Well all of this is due to NATO expansion. This is all due to US and the West wanting all Russian neighbors to be on their side. If you're Russia, won't you feel the need to protect your nation's security? When you're nation is being surrounded by threats?

    Shame on you US and the West! Stay strong Russia! Wake up Ukraine that you're being used! I hope the war ends.

  9. It's the usual " I love big brother" syndrome…. people lack intelligence … + 1 gun can control 100 people…I was told by someone living under autocracy

  10. MY FINANCIAL GOAL IS TO BE MAKING AT LEAST UP TO $1,000,000 EVERY YEAR BY INVESTING HEAVILY BOTH IN CRYPTO AND STOCK. I NEED GUIDIANCE. please comment below.,…

  11. The least horrific to stop Putin is to flood the Russian people with the truth as told individually by each individual and each country. Flood every media point and add more access points the Russians can connect to. If the Russian people know the truth, they will unite to stop Putin before he creates a nuclear holocaust. Every computer hacker, Every communications company, Every university and Every government can help with this process. The Russian people will end this war when they find out they have been lied to about everything for their whole lives. Putin and Lavrov will be looking for another job.

  12. A friend knows a doctor who knows a doctor in Israel that is supposedly treating Pootin for a type of “blood cancer “…

  13. Ukraine supported Azerbaijan in its fight over disputed territory emboldening Russia to take the disputed lands of Ukraine. maybe they brought this upon themselves.

  14. When the king of Russia wants to be king of the world what choice do the citizens have other than to go along for the ride.

  15. What about all the other countries the USSR/Russia has invaded or occupied since WW2? I counted at least 15 countries with around half of those being occupied for 40 years or longer (e.g Poland, Hungary). Unlike Germany & Japan since WW2, Russia just can’t seem to help itself even compared to the USA. Russia is already the biggest country in the world!

  16. Sooner better than later, Russia had to confront and defeat NATO's expansion east. Time to demilitarize former Warsaw Pact nations. Finland must remain Finlandized, i.e., not a military threat to Russia. Ukraine and its de Nazified form will be a vassal state of the Russian Federation. Russia will get an indivisible security treaty from US vassals, EU. No one came to Ukraine's aide after Zelinsky poked the Russian bear. Who will come to Poland's aide after Poland pokes the Russian bear?

  17. NATO is determined to destroy Russia so why are we acting like we don't know why Putin doesn't want Ukraine to be part of NATO? If Ukraine becomes part of NATO it will be continued hostility between the 2. This war was unavoidable. Putin will use everything he has to not allow this.

  18. How could 80% of Russian people back Putin when she just said that Putin has blocked all the negative news outlets. Am I getting Misinformation?
