On the other hand, 66% of respondents are convinced that the country’s armed forces will be able to recover the territory occupied by the Russian army since February 24. Only a tenth of the respondents expressed their doubts about it.

A little more than half, or 53%, of Ukrainians polled expressed confidence that they will also be able to recover the annexed Crimea and the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, which are supported by Moscow. 81% of the respondents were categorically against the possibility of negotiating the return of these territories to the aggressor state.

More than half of the surveyed Ukrainians admitted that they lost acquaintances or relatives in the war, while two thirds informed that they lost their jobs or opportunities to earn a living because of the war.

CONTEXT:

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to start invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine. Putin claimed that NATO was going to use Ukraine as a springboard for aggression against Russia, although there was no evidence for these claims. Ukraine believes that Putin’s real goal is to destroy Ukrainian statehood and bring the territory under Moscow’s control.
