As a result of the opinion poll carried out in DPR (so called 'Donetsk People's Republic'), less than one third of population support the local authorities, Donetsk news agency reports.

According to received data, there are 29% of those who support the DPR policy but do not support the Ukrainian government. However, only 10% of citizens within the DPR territory consider themselves to be ‘Russian patriots’.

The survey was conducted by ‘Special Status’ center in 19 towns of self-proclaimed DPR. Around 6,500 people had to answer the question ‘Why do you support the DPR?’
