Is there a reason why places like Donetsk still votes for pro-russian candidates? If you add the two pro-russian candidates with 10-30% of Zelensky support who can be broadly either pro-russia or pro-peace talks. They make up 50%+ when the areas were affected by war.

Those are pro-Russian regions. It was Yanukovich's electoral fortress. Also, some Russian TV and Radio channels still work there.


I know but theres area that was a battle site years ago. Perhaps people are just reacting to high unemployment and want a peace settlement even if they know Russia wouldn't honor it.

Sloviansk for example was devastated but 52.2% of the vote there went to Boiko and Vikul combined.

What did Poroshenko do to piss people off ?


The economy wasn't good although thats the fault of Russia and the separtists, however on corruption he was lackluster and corruption was one of the things he could have done something on if he wanted.
