Most Americans Support Continued Support for Ukraine

Feb 7, 2023

Almost a year after the beginning of the war between Russia and Ukraine, the support of Americans for Ukraine remains stable, at the same time, among the Republicans, there are most of those who support the early end of the war, even at the cost of territorial losses for Ukraine.

This is evidenced by the results of a poll conducted by Gallup from January 3 to January 22.

A steady 65% of U.S. adults prefer that the United States support Ukraine in regaining its territory, even if it leads to a protracted conflict. At the same time, 31% continue to say they would prefer to see the U.S. make efforts to end the war quickly, even if it allows Russia to retain the occupied territory.


The Biden administration has made support for Ukraine a cornerstone of its foreign policy. This may explain the partisan divisions on this issue - Democrats are far more supportive of Ukraine than Republicans and independents - although most of all three party groups support Ukraine continuing its struggle to regain its former territory.

While 81 percent of Democrat voters favor continuing to support Ukraine until it regains its seized territories, 53 percent of Republican voters are of that opinion, and 59 percent of independents.

Republican voters have the highest percentage of those in favor of ending the conflict as soon as possible, even at the cost of the lost territories of Ukraine - 41%. Among Democratic voters, only 16% hold such an opinion, among independents - 48% do.
