Results of a public opinion poll conducted by the Razumkov Centre Sociological Service on May 23–31, 2023, as part of the MATRA Program project financed by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine. 

Assessments and conclusions of the authors of this study should not be seen as the official position of the Embassy. 

The face-to-face poll was conducted in Vinnytsia, Volyn, Dnipropetrovsk, Zhytomyr, Transcarpathian, Zaporizhia, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kyiv, Kirovohrad, Lviv, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Poltava, Rivne, Sumy, Ternopil, Kharkiv, Kherson, Khmelnytskyi, Cherkasy, Chernihiv, Chernivtsi regions and the city of Kyiv (in Zaporizhia, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, Kherson regions — only in the territories controlled by the government of Ukraine, free of hostilities). 

The poll was held using stratified multistage sampling with random selection at the first stages of sampling and quota selection of respondents at the final stage (when respondents were selected on the basis of sex and age quotas). The sample population structure reproduces the demographic structure of the adult population of the territories where the poll was held as of the beginning of 2022 (by age, sex, settlement type). 

2020 respondents aged over 18 years were polled. The sample theoretical error does not exceed 2.3%. Meanwhile, additional systematic deviations of the sample might be caused by the consequences of the Russian aggression, in particular, forced evacuation of millions of citizens.
