Poll: 78% of Ukrainians see any compromises to end war unacceptable

Some 78% of respondents in the survey "Post-war future of Ukraine," run by the Kharkiv Institute of Social Research, believe Ukraine should not go for any compromises with Russia in order to end the war.

Andriy Chernousov, a leading expert with the organization, announced this during the presentation of the survey results at Ukrinform.

"One of the first and main issues that is of great concern to us, to many, is the ability of Ukraine to return all temporarily occupied, or, as they say, captured territories. The vast majority of Ukrainians, 89%, believe that it will definitely happen," Chernousov said.

According to the expert, only 6% doubt that this will be the case.

"Are there any compromises you are willing to accept in order to achieve peace? 78% of Ukrainians say there is no need to make any compromises," the expert noted.

When asked what the victory of Ukraine in the war personally means for them, 57% answered: the return to the 1991 borders, 21% will consider it a victory when Ukraine becomes a recognized leader in Eastern Europe.

According to the survey, for 8% of respondents, victory is the return to the borders as of February 24, 2022, and for another 8% - disintegration of Russia into several states.

Also, according to the survey, 75% of respondents believe that the occupation of Crimea is part of the war with Russia.

"In general, the feature of this study, I would say, is that it is so categorical, that is, on most fateful issues, Ukrainians demonstrate a unique unity," Chernousov emphasized.

The survey "Post-war future of Ukraine" was conducted by the Kharkiv Institute of Social Research in the period from November 5 to November 24, 2022. A total of 3,018 respondents were surveyed in all regions of Ukraine.
