Simultaneously, as the legal revolutionary legislation progresses rapidly, threats from pilots and reservists to refuse service if the legislation is completed have escalated.

The public's stance on this controversial matter shows that 54 percent of the respondents believe the government should take these threats into account, while 36 percent think otherwise, with 10 percent unsure.
