Poll Shows Most Russians Are Against US Military Operation

Two weeks after the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, an opinion poll has shown the majority of Russians do not support the U.S. decision to retaliate against the countries accused of harboring terrorists. According to the poll, conducted by the Public Opinion Foundation, 61 percent disapprove of retaliatory actions against the countries accused of harboring terrorists, while 27 percent support them. If such actions take place, Russia should be "neutral," said 58 percent of people polled. Twenty-four percent said Russia should support the actions, and 10 percent said Moscow should actively oppose any such action, the St. Petersburg Times reported.
