Over the past two years, the number of supporters of the idea of imposing visas with the Russian Federation has increased: today 52% support this idea, 44% are against. This is evidenced by the results of a survey of the sociological group Rating.

It is also noted that the majority of the respondents (72%) consider Russia a hostile country, only 12%—an allied one. Over the past year, the attitude of Ukrainians towards Belarus has also deteriorated to a large extent. The majority of Ukrainians regard the Republic of Belarus as a country hostile towards Ukraine, while over the past year the number of such respondents has more than doubled (from 22 to 48%).

The respondents consider the major allies of Ukraine to be Canada, Lithuania, Poland and Great Britain, as well as the USA and Turkey. Slightly fewer respondents consider France, Germany, and China to be Ukraine's allies, while the latter is considered more like a neutral country.

Note that citizens of the RF have the right to enter the territory of Ukraine without a visa for 90 days within 180 days.

Context. In early November, a petition banning Russian citizens from entering Ukraine or imposing a visa regime with an aggressor state gained more than 25,000 signatures in 8 days and several hours. This number of signatures is enough for President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to consider it.
