43 percent Ukrainians believe joining NATO would be the best option to ensure the country’s security. These are the results of the survey jointly conducted by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation and Kyiv International Institute of Sociology.

Meanwhile, 29 percent of the respondents support the non-aligned status of Ukraine. “The support of the military union with Russia and other CIS member countries dropped to the record-low level of 5 percent”, says the message at the website of Democratic Initiatives Foundation.

Opinions on the matter divide, depending on the region where the survey was conducted. Respectively, 67 and 50 percent of residents of western and central Ukraine support Ukraine’s membership in the Alliance. On the contrary, those surveyed in southern (51 percent), eastern regions (39) and Donbas (51 percent) prefer the non-aligned status for the country.

The survey was conducted by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation and Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, from December 15 through December 25, 2015. The sample included 2040 people over 18 years old, residents of all regions of Ukraine except Crimea. In Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the survey was conducted only in the government-held territories.
