75% against force
More than 75% of Ukrainians are against using military force to resolve the Kerch strait conflict, and 14.3% are for the use of force "for the protection of [the country's] territorial integrity" if negotiations prove unsuccessfull.
The Ukrainian center for political and economic research named after Alexander Razumkov conducted a survey on October 15-21 among 2013 respondents over 18 years of age in 118 areas in Ukraine.

"Convince Russia"
In response to the question how should Ukraine react to the breach of the state border, more than half of those surveyed, 56%, said that Russia has to be convinced that its actions are incorrect, 25.6% were for appealing to the UN Security Council and 24.8% were for appealing to an international court.
Of those polled, 26.1% were prepared to personally protect the territorial integrity of the country, and 59.1% were not.

Other help
Almost thirteen percent of respondents were for turning for help in this conflict to nations who will guarantee Ukraine's security in exchange for it giving up nuclear arms, 7.1% were for turning for help to NATO members, 7.4% were for revoking the agreement on stationing the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine and 5% were for severing diplomatic relations with Russia.

14% to unite with Russia
On the other hand, 14.1% of those questioned were for uniting with Russia, and 1.5% were ready to give part of Ukrainian territory to Russia.

37% in "liberal empire"
However, out of those polled, only 36.9% would want to live in a so-called "liberal empire," which could possibly be created by Russia in the post-Soviet space. The first step toward this would be the creation of a single economic space by Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. Of the respondents, 43.6% said they would not want to live in such an "empire," and 19.5% were undecided.

Offended
46.2% of the respondents were offended by the actions taken by Russia and believe them to be unlawful, 23.4% were calm about the events and believe Russia's actions to be justified, 15.5% of those surveyed "do not care" about the problem of the Russian-Ukrainian border, and 14.9% were undecided.
