74% Of Americans Consider War In Ukraine Important To National Interests


According to a new survey from the Pew Research Center, 74% of Americans view the war in Ukraine as important to US national interests – with 43% describing it as very important.

  • The report notes, “similar shares see the war between Israel and Hamas (75%) and tensions between China and Taiwan (75%) as important to U.S. national interests… When asked how important each conflict is to them personally, 59% of Americans say the war between Russia and Ukraine is important to them.”
  • Comes as the White House increases pressure on House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) to permit a floor vote on the Senate-passed USD$95 billion foreign aid package after Russia won a major battlefield victory in Avdiivka.
  • Johnson said in a statement on Saturday: “As Congress debates the best path forward to support Ukraine, the United States, and our partners, must be using every means available to cut off Putin’s ability to fund his unprovoked war in Ukraine and aggression against the Baltic states.”
