The majority of Ukrainians see Israel as a friendly country supporting Ukraine, a new poll found.

With 53 percent of Ukrainians believing Israel is their country’s ally, 12 percent think the opposite, according to the survey conducted earlier this month by the Institute of Sociology in Kyiv at the request of the Israeli Embassy in Ukraine. However, 43 percent of respondents expressed their dissatisfaction with the refusal of the Jewish state to assist their country militarily in their fight against the Russian invasion.

When asked how Israel helps Ukraine, 48 percent of respondents said Israel transferred humanitarian aid, 17 percent said Jerusalem provided intelligence, and 8 percent claimed that it transferred security equipment and weapons. While 11 percent think that Israel does not help Ukraine at all, 16 percent did not answer the question.
