Attitude towards the countries and assessment of the level of support for Ukraine. Wave 2
Over the week, attitudes towards some countries have deteriorated.
This is evidenced by the results of a survey of the urban population of Ukraine aged 18-60 years, which has been conducted by Kantar Ukraine. Conducted on March 19-20, 2022.
Over the past week, the perception of some countries, in particular Germany, China, and Japan, has deteriorated among the Ukrainian population.
Currently, respondents are most sympathetic to Poland, the UK, the Baltic states (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia), and Canada.
According to respondents, countries such as Poland (81%), the United Kingdom (55%), the United States (55%), the Baltic States (50%), and Canada (46%) are helping Ukraine the most.
The most negative perception of support was expressed towards Hungary (15%), Israel (14%), and China (5%).
Regarding the assistance from international institutions, respondents consider the International Criminal Court in The Hague (45%), support for the International Monetary Fund, and general support of Western countries (40% each) to be the most effective.
Over the past week, public opinion of the support for Ukraine by the Red Cross has improved by 7% (39%).
The most crucial areas of support are considered to be humanitarian and financial areas – 65% and 56% of positive assessments by the respondents, respectively. The world community’s military, legal and diplomatic efforts to stop the war in Ukraine are considered sufficient by fewer participants– 43%, 43%, and 41%, respectively.
Among those who consider international support for Ukraine insufficient in at least one of the areas (575 respondents), 49% consider the fear of direct military conflict with the Russian Federation to be the reason for the insufficient support.
Ukrainians most expect Ukraine to be provided with air assistance and provided a no-fly zone regime by NATO forces (69%). Amongst other expectations those listed below are the most popular:
60% —Ensuring the protection of nuclear power plants,
58% — Providing more weapons,
56% — Providing combat aircraft,
55% — Strengthening sanctions against the Russian Federation,
51% — Finalize Ukraine’s application to join the EU.
In terms of geographical representation, Kyiv and Lviv regions are the most expectant for assistance (according to the combined data of both waves, 1200 respondents in total, 285 residents of Kyiv region, 78 residents of Lviv region). Kyiv region residents are significantly more often than the sample as a whole note that it is necessary to provide combat aircraft (67% vs. 58%), more weapons (65% vs. 57%), more financial assistance here and now (50% vs. 43%), and to facilitate the involvement of foreign volunteer battalions to fight on the side of Ukraine (52% vs. 43%).
Lviv’s region residents significantly more often than the sample as a whole consider it necessary to provide more weapons (74% vs. 57%), strengthen sanctions against the Russian Federation (69% vs. 55%), and speed up international litigation of the Russian Federation’s actions during the war (58% vs. 45%).
