58% Ukrainians believe that the issue of bringing to justice those who are involved in possible miscalculations in preparation for a full-scale war should be postponed to the period after the war, so as not to provoke conflicts within the country, and so in a difficult period.
However, as According to the results of a survey by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS), a significant number of citizens – 31% – believe that it is necessary to immediately seek and punish those responsible for possible miscalculations in preparation for war, even at the cost of unity in society.
However, in in all regions of the country, the majority (56-64%) believe that this issue should be postponed to the period after the war.
“The fact that a third of the respondents want to be held accountable right now for possible miscalculations in preparation for the war, witness indicates the need to continue balanced and reasoned communication on the part of the authorities. The majority of the population nevertheless prioritizes social unity, which allows us to channel this issue into the future after the victory. However, it is not worth considering that there are no problems so far, since, again, targeted media activity can again excite the public with the demand for “punishment”, – Anton Grushetsky, Deputy Director of KIIS, comments on the results of the study.
The survey was conducted  ; September 7-13 by telephone interviews among 2,000 residents of all regions of Ukraine, except for the occupied Crimea.
