Poll: 88% of Ukrainians believe Ukraine will win the war against Russia

This steadfast conviction remains despite the increased toll and consequences of nearly two years of full-scale war: 35% said life has become “a little worse” over 2022, while 40% reported a significant deterioration in their living conditions.

Poll: 88% of Ukrainians believe Ukraine will win the war against Russia

The majority of Ukrainians (88%) believe Ukraine will prevail against Russia’s invasion, according to a recent public opinion poll conducted by the Razumkov Centre sociological company.

63% indicated they “unambiguously” believe Ukraine will win, and 24 % believe Ukraine will likely win the war rather than not win. Compared to December 2022, the ratio between those who unconditionally believe in victory (it was 78%, now it’s 63%) and those who rather believe in victory (it was 15% in December 2022, now it’s 25%) has changed slightly.

“The belief in victory continues to unite an absolute majority of Ukrainians,” the the Razumkov Centre poll said.

This steadfast conviction comes despite the grinding toll of nearly a year of full-scale war. 35% said life has become “a little worse” over 2022, while 40% reported a significant deterioration in their living conditions.

The polling data showed war dominates daily existence for most citizens. “The war influences the everyday life of the absolute majority of the population (95%),” the report said. Of that figure, 61% described the impact as “determinant.” This sentiment crossed regional and age divides.

Respondents did cite flickers of hope amid the hardship. 55% said they look to the future of their own lives with hope. An even larger share, 61%, cast an optimistic eye toward Ukraine’s future.

The survey also recorded a rise in apprehension about both personal and national prospects compared to late 2022.

“Faith in victory continues to be the most widespread emotion as it was in 2022,” the survey company reported, “but the number of those who feel anxiety has grown somewhat.”

    Ukrainians’ support for wartime criticism of authorities risen since 2022 

    When Russia’s full-scale invasion started in 2022, the majority of Ukrainians believed that it was not necessary to critisize the government to avoid destabilizing the situation, however a survey by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) in May 2024 reveals that 31% of Ukrainians think criticism should be harsh and uncompromising, while 63% believe it should be constructive.
