Support for joining NATO reaches historical highs – Rating Group

Support for Ukraine's accession to the European Union and NATO is the highest in the history of surveys on the question, according to a study conducted by the Rating Sociological Group on March 1.

Some 86% of Ukrainians support Ukraine's accession to the EU, 76% - for joining NATO.

"Compared to the pre-war period, the level of support for joining the EU and NATO increased by more than 20 percentage points. The positive dynamics occurred due to the growth of support for joining Western structures among the population of the south and east. In terms of age, in all categories, there is unanimous support for Ukraine's entry into EU and NATO," the group said.

Some 61% of respondents believe that Ukraine will become a member of the European Union in the near future (within 1-2 years). 13% believe that Ukraine will become a member of the EU in 5 years, in the longer term - 6%. Only 17% find it difficult to make estimates.

Some 4% of respondents do not believe that Ukraine will become a member of the EU. Compared to last year, the number of those who do not believe in the European integration of Ukraine has significantly decreased (in November 2021, there were 26% of such people).

The study interviewed 1,200 respondents over the age of 18 in all government-controlled regions using CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews - telephone interviews using a computer). The error of the representativeness of the study with a confidence probability of 0.95 does not exceed 2.8%.
