Summary

The evidence shows that Ukrainians have coalesced around these elements of social cohesion. This seems to be a phenomenon that indicates more than ‘rallying around the flag’ in the face of Russia’s full-scale aggression and an existential threat to the survival of the state and individuals. Ukrainians are unifying not only in their support for institutions but also as a society in their sense of belonging, values, and purpose. The results show a strong sense of identification with the country and nation as well as an orientation towards the common good. Confidence in public institutions and figures also exhibits the strongest boost among panel respondents compared to 2021. However, there is some room for improvement in terms of transforming the willingness to engage in civic and political life into actual participation.
