What do Ordinary Australians Think of the Conflict?
What do ordinary Australians think of the conflict?
“Pro-Russian sentiments are present in Australia among ordinary people. It’s only the politicians who do the will of their American patrons, spreading anti-Russian ideology. The people are not against Russia. President Vladimir Putin is very popular, by the way, in Australia, and in general, Russians are respected.
I think that anti-Russian hysteria is beneficial to the United States, and England, to keep Australia in fear. Australia depends, of course, on this system. And it is very sad that she sends military aid, and weapons in favor of the Ukrainian fascists in Kyiv.
Australian taxpayers, of course, are unhappy that the Australian money goes there. It’s a very unpopular policy of the Australian state.
A typical Aussie in relation to a special military operation says: “Australia doesn’t have a dog in this fight”, which means: “Australia has nothing to do with it,” we should not interfere and should not participate. People understand that there is no interest for Australia here, and Russia does not threaten it in any way,” said AussieCossack.
