92% of Ukrainians want Ukraine to join the EU

Meanwhile, 86% of Ukrainians also support their country’s accession to NATO. These were the results of a survey by the National Democratic Institute (NDI).

Despite the full-fledged war, the respondents demonstrated an unprecedented optimism about Ukraine’s future: 89% said they were optimistic about the country’s future.

The Ukrainians are demonstrably unwilling to trade land for peace. The only acceptable war ending scenario for Ukrainians is Ukraine reclaiming the territory it controlled up until 2014, which includes the whole of Donbas and Crimea (92%).

Russia’s full-scale invasion affects the lives and financial standing of people: only 5% say they are comfortable living off their current income. Electricity is a problem for 50% of the population, and the Internet is a problem for another 26%.

Despite all this, Ukrainians do whatever they can to support their Armed Forces and fellow citizens in need of help: 88% of the respondents said they donated money to support the army, and 67% donated for humanitarian aid. More than half of the country has hosted or helped internally displaced people, and 41% are volunteering.

The nationwide survey was developed and conducted by the National Democratic Institute in Ukraine. Survey fieldwork was conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology on January 4–16, 2023, using the CATI (Computer-Assisted Telephone Interview) method, which included 2,508 completed interviews. The margin of error for the national sample is 2.2%.

Previously, the European Commission proposed on Thursday to renew the suspension of import duties, quotas, and trade defense measures on Ukrainian exports to the European Union for another year.
