An overwhelming majority (70%) of surveyed Ukrainians believe that President Volodymyr Zelensky should remain in office until the end of the martial law regime. This is according to the results of a poll conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) as part of the Mobilise project from May 26 to June 1.

22% of respondents disagreed with the statement that Zelensky should remain president until the end of martial law. "Depending on the region of residence, 65-74% of respondents agree with this, meaning that the vast majority of Ukrainians do not question the president's legitimacy", - noted the press release on the survey results.

56% of Ukrainians rather or fully approve of Zelensky's performance as president, while 37% rather or fully disapprove. "In a previous survey in September 2023, 77% approved of his performance. Therefore, the approval rating has significantly decreased but remains high", - KIIS noted.

Additionally, there is a trend of decreasing admiration for the president (from 33% in July 2022 to 8% now), but overall, a majority of Ukrainians (69%) have a neutral-positive attitude towards him.

The survey was conducted using the Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) method, polling 2,011 adult respondents from all controlled regions of Ukraine. The margin of error is no more than 2.4% for indicators close to 50% and no more than 0.5% for indicators close to 1%.

It was also reported that about 50% of Ukrainians believe Zelensky has not fulfilled most of his pre-election promises.
