Public support for Russian sanctions dwindles as cost of living crisis takes its toll

The figures suggest the public’s concern for the war in Ukraine may now be outweighed by financial worries.

A third of respondents said they would be happy to pay more for food if it would help Ukraine in its fight against Russia, while a third said they would not.

Shortly after the invasion Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary, said Britain would take an “economic hit” because of sanctions on Russia, but said it would be “far worse” to allow Vladimir Putin to take control in Ukraine.

“The pain that we will face in the United Kingdom is nothing like the pain people in Ukraine are currently facing,” she said.
