This ‘Annual Survey 2022 – Ukraine. Perception of the European Union’ was carried out by the EU regional Communication Programme for the Eastern Neighbourhood (EU NEIGHBOURS east). The survey was conducted in June-July 2022, with Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews.
Awareness and support of the EU has soared to overwhelming levels in Ukraine, reflecting massive EU support in the face of Russia’s all-out war against Ukraine, and the granting of EU candidate status to Ukraine. According to the survey, 95% of Ukrainians are aware of EU support (with 98% aware of support for refugees and IDPs, and 97% aware of EU humanitarian aid), and 94% feel their country has good relations with the EU – up from 65% last year. Sixty-five per cent have a positive view of the EU (up from 57% last year and 49% when the surveys began in 2016), while only 2% have a negative view.
