Description: The Kremlin’s version of the Ukraine war has reached remarkably strong popular support in Indonesia despite its government’s official cautious responses to the invasion. In this paper, we investigate individual-level characteristics (i.e., personality and intergroup attitudes) that may predict the endorsement of pro-Russian sentiments on the war in Ukraine, which constitute distorted narratives. Using data from 1,044 Indonesians who completed an online survey, we found that Antisemitic conspiracy beliefs are the strongest predictor of pro-Russian sentiments, followed by right-wing authoritarianism (RWA) and the wish for a strong leader. Comparing Indonesians’ support for pro-Russian sentiments with their endorsement of misinformation about COVID-19, we show that Antisemitic conspiracy beliefs predict both. We discuss the theoretical and practical implications of these findings.
