50% of people in Britain think that the crisis in Ukraine is a matter for Britain and the West; 33% disagree

The first poll since the weekend's dramatic developments in Ukraine reveals that 50% of British voters think that the situation in Ukraine 'should concern Britain and the West', while 33% say that it 'should be a matter between Russia and Ukraine.'

Fully 58% of the population say they are following the story closely.

A more detailed survey laying out the main options for a Western response has run overnight and will be released later today.
