How Has the War in Ukraine Affected Sentiments in Russia?

On the 26th of March, Professor Olle Hammar from Linnaeus University will deliver a presentation on his working paper titled “How Has the War in Ukraine Affected Sentiments in Russia?” at SSE, with the option to attend online via Zoom.

Working Paper: How Has the War in Ukraine Affected Sentiments in Russia?

The researchers investigate how the war in Ukraine has impacted opinions and sentiments in Russia. Utilizing survey data from Gallup World Poll and the Levada Center, they scrutinize the effects on political support for Putin, attitudes towards the West, subjective well-being, optimism about the future, and migration aspirations. Their primary focus lies on assessing the repercussions of the full-scale invasion in February 2022 and the military mobilization of young men in September 2022. Additionally, they incorporate data on Russian casualties to explore potential regional heterogeneity within Russia.
