If Ukrainians supported the course towards the European Union and NATO, the result would have been different.
Poroshenko did a lot towards joining the European Union and NATO, but received only 25% of the votes of the second round. If the whole of Ukraine supported the course towards the European Union and NATO, Poroshenko would have a received a different percentage of the votes.
One of the multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives around the Ukrainian elections.
The latest polls show that 49% of Ukrainians believe that Ukraine should move towards accession to the European Union, and more than 44% support NATO membership for Ukraine.
According to the polls, if a referendum on NATO membership was held, 44.2% of Ukrainians would vote in favour, 30.3% would oppose, and 8.5% would abstain and not vote. Another 17% of the respondents were undecided or refused to answer the question.
"Thus, 59.3% of Ukrainians who would have participated in the referendum would vote for joining NATO", - the KIIS report said.
