Poll: 96% of Ukrainians praise country’s Army

Ukrainians retain a positive attitude to the soldiers who at different times and in different armies defended their homeland from enemies.

This is evidenced by the tenth nationwide poll: "Ideological markers of war (April 27, 2022)", run by the Rating Sociological Group, Ukrinform reports.

According to the survey, the vast majority of respondents (96%) retain a positive attitude towards soldiers with the modern Ukrainian Army. Society is also dominated by a positive attitude towards Soviet soldiers who fought against Nazism (85%) and UPA (Ukrainian Insurgent Army) soldiers (71%). While there are regional differences in the assessments of Soviet soldiers and UPA forces, there is a complete regional and age consensus on modern-day soldiers of the Ukrainian Army, sociologists say.

According to them, support for the recognition of the OUN-UPA as participants in the fight for state independence of Ukraine has increased significantly: 81% support the assumption and only 10% are against it. Since 2010, the support rate has quadrupled, and since 2015, it has doubled.

The sample is representative by age, sex, and type of settlement. Sample population: 1,000 respondents. Survey method: CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews).
