Polling carried out in Ukraine has revealed that if a referendum on NATO membership had been held in December 2009 only 21% of Ukraine’s population would have voted yes. 60% of poll respondents were against Ukraine joining NATO and 19% were 'don't knows'.

NATO membership is more popular in the western part of the country. More than 2,000 respondents participated in the poll carried out on December 12-29 2009.
