Three-quarters of Canadians support Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion.
That’s according to a study run by Abacus Data, whose results were published by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, Ukrinform reports.
The poll says more than 80% of respondents are open to the idea of providing support to Ukraine for the nation to protect its borders.
When asked whether Canadian assistance should include weapons, the vast majority of interviewees (75%) agreed.
The poll has also proved that ordinary Canadians are generally familiar with the situation around Ukraine: 67% of respondents have recently heard, read, or watched news reports about it.
Based on these sociological data, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress urged the government to "hear the voice of the Canadian people and substantially increase military assistance to Ukraine, including the provision of weapons to Ukraine’s Armed Forces."
Canada has been actively supporting Ukraine's integrity, condemning Russia's aggressive actions but at the same time stopping short of supplying lethal weapons.
