As I understood it, a No vote meant a vote in favor of independence. That's why Galicia overwhelmingly voted No. If No means preserving the status quo in the Soviet Union, then obviously Galicia would have voted Yes as the lesser of the two evils.I am not sure, but i recall that the options were : preserve the USSR in a somewhat different form or as it is. So, maybe the outcome was not what the people really, really wanted.
