Monday, 1 January 2024

The vast majority of Germans do not expect Russia's war against Ukraine to end in 2024.

According to the results of a survey held by the YouGov sociological institute at the request of the dpa news agency, as many as 70% of Germans believe it is unlikely that the war in Ukraine will end by the end of 2024.

Only 15% of respondents share the opposite opinion.

Germans are somewhat more hopeful that the conflict in Gaza will end, although the majority (52%) do not expect it to end in 2024. Some 32% think peace is likely, while 16% are unsure.


The survey was conducted online on 15-19 December among 2,092 respondents. It is considered representative of German adults.

Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stated that Germany should be prepared to increase its support for Ukraine amid weakening support from others.
