Almost 41% of Ukrainians consider joining NATO the best option for guaranteeing Ukraine’s security.

This are the results of a poll conducted by the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation jointly with the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, a Ukrinform correspondent reports.

40.9% of respondents support Ukraine’s accession to NATO, 35.9% prefer non-aligned status, while 7.4% of Ukrainians believe that a military alliance with Russia and other CIS countries would be the best security guarantee for the country.

In April of 2012, only 13% of Ukrainian citizens regarded joining NATO as the best security guarantee.

The nationwide public opinion poll was conducted by the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation jointly with the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology from August 8 to August 20, 2019. The poll was conducted in 103 populated localities in all regions of Ukraine except for the occupied parts of the country, Crimea and occupied Donbas.

A total of 2,040 respondents over 18 years old were interviewed. The sampling error does not exceed 2.3%.
