An overwhelming majority of Ukrainians oppose giving land to Russia as part of any peace deal, even if it means prolonging the war as a result, according to a new poll released on Tuesday.

The survey of 2,000 Ukrainians was reportedly conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology between May 13 and May 18, with the results released on the third anniversary of the February 24 Russian invasion.

The poll found that 82% of Ukrainians did not support territorial concessions as part of a peace deal, while 10% were in favor and 8% were undecided.
