The majority of EU citizens favor measures in support of Ukraine against Russian aggression, including humanitarian, economic, and military means, based on a survey by Eurobarometer published by the European Commission on Sept. 11.

According to the poll, 86% of Europeans approve of the continued EU humanitarian aid to the people affected by the war. Some 77% accept welcoming refugees, 71% support sanctions, while 67% and 65% believe the EU should support Ukraine on its path toward European integration and the single market, respectively.

Finally, 65% of respondents favor economic and financial support for Ukraine, and 57% think that the EU should support the purchase and supply of military equipment and training to Ukraine.

Some 86% of Europeans also believe that the EU should tackle the impact of rising energy prices, while 80% think that Europe ought to reduce excessive dependencies on countries like Russia or China.

A large majority of respondents said that because of Russia's war against Ukraine, the EU member states should ensure their energy and economic security (85%), strengthen military cooperation within the bloc (75%), and continue to show solidarity with Ukraine (71%).

Since the start of the full-scale invasion, many EU countries have backed Ukraine both on the national and European levels. The proposed or ongoing initiatives include macro-financial support, humanitarian assistance, and the purchase of military materiel.
