Another 15.5% of respondents were undecided or refused to answer the question... 65.7% of Ukrainians, who are ready to participate in the referendum, would vote for joining the European Union," the sociologists said.

According to Paniotto, 72% of the residents of western Ukraine, 48% of the residents of central Ukraine, 32.2% of the population of southern Ukraine, 31.9% of eastern Ukraine residents and 24.3% of the population of Donbas would support joining the EU.
