Ukrainians decided what victory over Russia should be like

According to the results of the survey, 85% of Ukrainians are convinced that Ukraine will defeat the Russians and regain all occupied territories, including Crimea and Donbas.

Quote: "Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, the conviction that Ukraine's victory in the war is the liberation of all its territories, including Crimea and occupied Donbas, has increased (from 74% in March to 85% in November 2022). 


Only 9% chose the option of returning only the territories that Ukraine controlled until 24 February 2022…

Support for the liberation of all territories of Ukraine without exception is absolute (more than 80%) among representatives of all oblasts of the country."

Details: No more than 5% support the continuation of hostilities on the territory of Russia.


The survey results indicate that the number of those who support restoration of Ukraine's status of a nuclear state has increased (from 47% in 2019 to 53% in 2022).


Ukraine's accession to NATO (61%) and Russia's nuclear disarmament (50%) are the most frequently supported measures by respondents to deter future attacks on Ukraine.

Ukraine's accession to the EU and guarantees from Western partners regarding the supply of weapons to Ukraine as deterrence methods are supported by 34% of respondents.

Ukraine's nuclear armament and financial assistance to our country received 17% each. 

Only 8% support signing peace agreements with Russia as a method of deterring aggression.
