@Perun I don’t think they counted Crimea. But even if the counted Crimea is a tiny fraction of Ukraine. 2.2mln population in comparison to 42mln of Ukrainians. Donbass may have been counted and it’s populous around 6-7mln.
Ukrainians have always been friendly to Russians despite political fall-out. When it comes to politics things are quite different. Even close relatives get into quarrels.
