Ukrainians do not expect Western countries to send their soldiers to Ukraine. The pro-European orientation is combined with expectations that Ukraine will profit from closer relations with the EU economically and on the international stage

Ukrainians hope to receive humanitarian help for refugees and economic support. They also support tightening or maintaining sanctions imposed towards Russia by the EU. Awareness of what ”Europe” or ”being part of Europe” means needs to be strengthened.

In general Ukrainians positively asses Western policies towards the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

These are, in a nutshell, the most important results of a survey which is today presented by the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the Warsaw Institute ofPublic Affairs in cooperation with the European Commission Representation in Warsaw.
