The recent poll shows more than half Ukrainians see no point in Zelensky’s going into direct talks with Russia’a leader Vladimir Putin without backing from the West.

Asked if Zelensky-Putin summit could help bring back occupied territories, over five in  six respondents (84,4%)  said they do not believe such talks will help to claim back Crimea while two thirds of respondents (66,3%) share the same gloomy forecast about occupied territories in Donbas.


Meanwhile, almost 40% of respondents oppose any concessions to Moscow and say caving in to Vladimir Putin’s  demands will weaken Ukraine’s security and embolden Russian agressive policies.


The poll involved 1203 respondents from regions of Ukraine. The statistical sampling error does not exceed 3%.
