Monday, 3 October 2022
83% of Ukrainians would vote for joining NATO in a referendum - the record high support in history.
In a referendum, 83% would support joining NATO, 4% would vote against it, and 9% would not vote, according to the sociological group "Rating."
In addition, 86% of respondents would support Ukraine's accession to the European Union in a referendum (3% against, 7% would not vote). Support for joining the EU is unanimous among representatives of all macro-regions and age groups.
In June 2022, 76% supported joining NATO.
Contrary to joining the EU, residents of Eastern Ukraine are more cautious about joining NATO (69% - for joining, 9% - against, 17% - would not come to vote). Despite this, compared to the previous survey, the dynamics of support for joining the Alliance among residents of this macro-region is very positive (in June, 55% were in favor, 20% were against, 22% would not vote).
