Americans are beginning to question Ukraine’s support – poll

3 mins read

According to a Reuters/Ipsos study, fewer US adults are committed to supporting Kiev against Russia than they were in the conflict’s early months

According to a recent poll, roughly three in ten Americans are undecided about whether to continue supporting Kiev in the fight six months after Russia’s military incursion against Ukraine began.

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll issued on Wednesday, while 53% of US adults agree that Washington should back Kiev “until all Russian forces are withdrawn from territory claimed by Ukraine,” 28% are unsure. Independents are particularly likely to have doubts about continuing to send guns and other help into Ukraine (37%), while 18% of Americans are against the supplies outright.

According to the survey, as the war wears on, support for US engagement is dwindling, which has a negative impact on domestic inflation. Actually, 40% of Americans now concur that “the issues of Ukraine are none of our affair, and we should not interfere.” Comparatively, 31% responded to the same question in April.

Additionally, according to the survey, 69% of Republicans and 59% of respondents overall think that “given the current economic situation, the US cannot afford to extend financial support to Ukraine.” Compared to 73% in April, only around half (51%) now approve arming Ukraine. Just 26%, down from 39% in April, approve deploying US troops to Ukraine.

The largest shipment of arms earmarked for Kiev since hostilities started in February was revealed by US President Joe Biden on Wednesday: $3 billion in further military assistance for Ukraine. Since aiding in the toppling of Kiev’s democratic government in 2014, the US has provided more than $15.5 billion in military assistance to Ukraine. The majority of such help, or $13.5 billion, has been publicized in the last six months.

When it comes to limiting Russian gas and oil imports even if it means raising the cost of domestic energy consumption, Americans are evenly divided. According to the survey, 50% of respondents support import restrictions on Russian goods, even if it means paying higher prices. Similarly, 49% concur that having gas supplies for their residences and enterprises is more crucial than attempting to sway Russia. Only 21% of people, however, concur that the effects of anti-Russian sanctions are not worth the cost to the US.

The poll found that inflation is a much bigger worry than the Ukraine conflict. 75% of Americans actively monitor inflation-related news, compared to 58% who follow the war at least “very closely.”
