Recently, the Sociological Group Rating completed a large-scale study in collaboration with the globally renowned Gallup International research institute. The survey was conducted as part of the "End of Year" 2023 project. 

• Ukraine is among the countries with the lowest level of fear regarding nuclear threats. Overall, there hasn't been a significant decrease in fears of nuclear threats worldwide throughout the year. Two-fifths of respondents now perceive a high risk of nuclear weapon use. Almost an equal proportion assesses the risk as moderate, with only 14% perceiving no risk.

• In general, European countries have fewer respondents who perceive the threat of nuclear weapon use as high compared to countries in Asia, Africa, and South America, where perceptions of nuclear threats are more pessimistic.

• At the same time, Italy, Portugal, and Romania are the most fearful of nuclear threats among European countries, with more than half assessing the threat as high. Indonesia, Nigeria, Ecuador, Syria, and Argentina have the highest proportion of respondents who perceive the nuclear threat as high.

• Conversely, Ukraine, Iran, Pakistan, and Armenia have the highest percentage of respondents who perceive no such risk.

• The youngest group of respondents holds the most pessimistic views regarding the nuclear threat.
