Poll showed that the majority of Americans support Washington's military assistance to Kyiv. This applies to both Democrats and Republicans.
Nearly three-quarters of Americans believe the US should continue to support Ukraine despite Russian threats to use nuclear weapons. This is reported by Reuters, citing an Ipsos poll.
It is reported that an online poll of 1,005 Americans showed that 73% agree that the United States should continue to support Ukraine. Both Democrats and Republicans agreed with this, although among the Democrats there was more support – 81%, among the Republicans – 66%.
The material also says that the majority of Americans – 58% – are afraid that the country is moving towards a nuclear war with Russia. And 65% are worried that the war could escalate if Ukraine is given longer-range weapons that could hit Russia itself.
On the other hand, as journalists write, a minority of respondents are sure that Ukraine's problems are not case of the USA. This opinion was expressed by 35% compared to 40% in August.
The survey has a confidence interval of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Furthermore, in another survey conducted 4-5 October, 66% of respondents said Washington should definitely continue to supply weapons to Ukraine, compared with 51% in a similar poll in August.
The material says that after Russia's full-scale invasion on February 24, the Biden administration provided Ukraine with more 16.8 billion dollars in security assistance.
We also recall that the Russian Foreign Ministry threatened NATO with war because of support for Ukraine. The reason for the aggressive statement of Russian diplomats was the US announcement of a new military aid package for the Ukrainian army.
