The vast majority of the population of Ukraine, 81%, either want to eliminate the Russian language from official communication or are against its use in their region. However, 10% of respondents would like to see Russian either official in their region, or even a second state language.

It is noted that the attitude towards the status of the Russian language has undergone significant changes after the full-scale invasion.

In particular, the share of those who believe that the Russian language should not be studied in schools at all has increased sharply in all regions – in 2019, there were only 8% of them, in 2023 – 52%.

The report emphasized that Ukraine maintains a mostly normal (positive or neutral) attitude towards Russian-speaking fellow citizens, but the long-term course is the development of the Ukrainian language as an important component and symbol of the Ukrainian civil nation.
