Ukrainians not ready to cede territories for peace – poll

Most Ukrainians show no interest in ceding Ukraine’s territories to Russia for the sake of peace.

The relevant findings were released after a poll conducted by the National Democratic Institute and the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to the poll results, 89% of Ukrainians believe the only acceptable scenario for ending the war is to bring back the territories controlled by Ukraine before 2014, including the entire Donbas and Crimea.

The poll also shows that, despite the full-scale war, 87% of respondents are extremely optimistic about Ukraine’s future.

Most Ukrainians trust the Armed Forces of Ukraine (97%) and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (85%). Government and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine also have high credibility among Ukrainians, 56% and 40% respectively.

The nation-wide survey was developed and conducted by the National Democratic Institute in Ukraine. Field works were carried out by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology between May 2, 2022 and May 11, 2022, using a CATI technique. A total of 2,500 adult respondents, living in Ukraine now and using mobile phones, were interviewed.
