Poll: Most Americans Don’t Want US to Fight Russia

Americans strongly oppose sending US soldiers to fight Russians in defence of Kiev’s sovereignty, according to a new poll conducted by the Economist/YouGov. The results of the study showed that only 13 per cent of US adults believe it would be a “good idea” to deploy troops to fight Russians in Ukraine. 

The findings on public opinion come as the US and its NATO allies vow to impose severe sanctions against Moscow but not to deploy troops if Russia invades Ukraine. Joe Biden’s top security advisor, Jake Sullivan, reiterated on Sunday that Russia is positioned to launch an attack on Ukraine “at any moment.”

“We have seen over the course of the past 10 days a dramatic acceleration in the buildup of Russian forces and the disposition of those forces in such a way that they could launch a military action practically at any time,” Sullivan said.

Russia has denied having any intention of invading Ukraine and blamed the US and other NATO members for escalating tensions in Eastern Europe. Moscow sent security proposals to Washington but the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken insisted that the alliance will keep its doors open to prospective new members.

The poll found that economic sanctions against Russia are supported by 50 per cent of the adults surveyed, sending financial aid to Ukraine – by 42 per cent, sending weapons there – by 38 per cent, and sending soldiers to Ukraine to provide help, but not to fight Russian soldiers – by 33 per cent of respondents, while 55 per cent of Americans oppose sending combat troops to Ukraine.
