Three-quarters of citizens proud of Ukraine

The war unleashed by Russia contributed to the formation of a positive attitude of Ukrainians toward their country and its future.

This is evidenced by the results of the 19th nationwide poll, presented by Oleksiy Antypovych, director of the Rating Sociological Group, at the event "Editorial Board 2.0" organized by the Media Center Ukraine and on January 26, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"What does a Ukrainian currently think about Ukraine? 75% [of Ukrainians] feel proud. I draw your attention to the fact that only a third felt proud a year ago. In 2021, the first response when thinking about Ukraine was "sadness". Currently, there is no such thing. In other words, the war brought the society not even from a passive, but from a depressed state in its attitude to its state," Antypovych said.

He emphasized that more and more Ukrainians no longer feel ashamed when thinking about Ukraine: "Just a year ago, every fifth person said that he or she was ashamed of the state, and today it is only 2%." At the same time, the poll did not reveal people indifferent to the state at all, although in 2021 there were 5% of such people.

"Ukrainians have very high expectations for the future. Where do they see Ukraine in 10 years? Two-thirds say they see Ukraine on the top. But if the authorities do not lead us there, or if we as a society do not get there, then new disappointment and depression await us again," the expert warned.

Ukrainian citizens aged 18 and older from all regions, except for the temporarily occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas, as well as territories where there was no Ukrainian mobile communication, took part in the 19th nationwide poll held on November 20-21, 2022.

The study was based on a random sample of mobile phone numbers. The sample is 1,000 respondents. The sampling error with 0.95 confidence: no more than 3.1%.
