The Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation (Kyiv) conducted a face-to-face poll in cooperation with the Center for Political Sociology (Kyiv) from 07 to 15 May 2022 in seven western and four central regions of Ukraine. 1,000 respondents were interviewed at the place of their permanent residence. Migrants/refugees/IDPs were not included. The poll does not reflect the opinion of the population of the unsampled central, southern and eastern regions of Ukraine which are most affected by the war.

The 62 questions of the poll cover the topics of Ukraine's friends and enemies, the country's strategic goals plus basic socio-demographic and identity-related indicators.

The SPSS file contains the original Ukrainian wording of the questions. The original Ukrainian questionnaire togehter with an English translation is available as seperate file (questionnaire.pdf). This file is also needed if the Excel-version of the raw data (converted file format) is used.
