More Americans now say the U.S. is not doing enough to assist Ukraine in its war with Russia, while a majority still favor helping Ukraine reclaim its territory.

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has led to hardship and strain. Ukrainians in 2023 report high negative emotions and struggling to afford basic needs.

More than a year into the war with Russia, Ukrainians' support of their president and the country's military remains near record highs, but the rally effect for other institutions may have been shorter-lived.
