A presentation at a January 24 conference in Washington, D.C. by Irina Baleva, Ipsos Country Manager for Ukraine, highlights that most Ukrainians feel they receive enough support when it comes to taking Ukrainian refugees, but not enough assistance from partner countries with the provision of weapons. The presentation previews findings of the third wave of the Ukraine Resilience Monitor, a telephone survey of 800 adults conducted January 11-20, 2023.

Key findings shared:

  • Three in five Ukrainians (60%) agree Ukraine receives strong diplomatic support
  • Nearly all (95%) see a great benefit to their country from visits by the world leaders
  • Four in five (83%) would like to see more visits to the liberated towns in the East and South
  • Three in four (73%) feel Ukraine receive enough support when it comes to taking in refugees, about half (49%) when it comes to economic aid, but only 18% when it comes to the provision of weapons by partner countries.
  • Ukrainians view the United States, the United Kingdom, and Poland as the most reliable guarantors for their country’s security
  • While 22% of Ukrainians had to flee Ukraine since the war started, only 12% remain outside the country
  • More than half of Ukrainians (54%) report a drop in their personal income as employment fell from 70% pre-war to 56% in January 2023 and the cost of living increased by 42% in the meantime
  • Recently liberated towns have suffered devastating economic and human losses with only one in four adults employed

These are some of the findings of the Ipsos Ukraine Resilience Monitor survey conducted January 11 – 20, 2023, among 800 adults aged 18+ in Ukraine, via random-digit-dialing telephone interviews. The data is weighted by age, gender, and geography before February 24, 2022, based on national statistics so that sample composition best reflects the demographic profile of the adult population. Where results do not sum to 100 or the ‘difference’ appears to be +/-1 more/less than the actual, this may be due to rounding, multiple responses or the exclusion of don't knows or not stated responses. The publication of these findings abides by local rules and regulations.
