Some 92% of Ukrainians have negative attitude towards Russia - KIIS opinion poll

The vast majority of Ukrainians (92%) have a negative attitude towards Russia, according to the results of a telephone poll conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology.

So, in a press release with the results of a survey published by sociologists on Thursday, it is indicated that over the past three years before the full-scale invasion, there was a gradual decrease in positive attitudes towards Russia, but even despite several months of escalation near the borders of Ukraine, 34% of the population of Ukraine in early February 2022 treated Russia well.

As of May, this figure has dropped to 2%, while 92% of Ukrainians have a bad attitude towards the Russian Federation.

At the same time, conducting a second survey of 513 citizens who had previously been survey participants and expressed their attitude towards Russia, sociologists found that 80% of those who used to have a good attitude towards Russia, now have a bad attitude towards it.

Less than one in ten retained a positive attitude towards Russia, although another 12% now decided to answer "undecided." Among those who had an indefinite attitude towards Russia, 97% now have a bad attitude towards it.

The vast majority of citizens - 82% - who continue to live in the territory occupied after February 24, 2022, have a negative attitude towards Russia, and only 6% have a positive attitude towards it.

A sociological telephone poll of public opinion "The dynamics of the attitude of the population towards Russia and the emotional background as a result of the war" was conducted on May 13-18, 2022. A total of 2,000 respondents living in all regions of Ukraine (except for the Autonomous Republic of Crimea) were interviewed using the method of telephone interviews using a computer (CATI) based on a random sample of mobile phone numbers. The statistical error of the sample (with a probability of 0.95 and taking into account the design effect of 1.1) did not exceed 2.4% under formal conditions, but in war conditions a systematic deviation is added to it.

The survey was conducted with adult (aged 18 years and older) citizens of Ukraine who at the time of the survey were residing on the territory of Ukraine (within the limits controlled by the Ukrainian authorities until February 24, 2022).

The sample did not include residents of territories that were temporarily not controlled by the Ukrainian authorities until February 24, 2022 (AR of Crimea, Sevastopol, certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions), and the survey was not conducted with citizens who went abroad after February 24, 2022.
