Joint meeting of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Presidium of the National Academy of Educational Sciences of Ukraine on the "Assessment of the socio-psychological state of the population of Ukraine during the war"


 

On May 4, a joint meeting of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Presidium of the National Academy of Educational Sciences of Ukraine on    the "Assessment of the socio-psychological state of the population of Ukraine during the war." The meeting was chaired by the President of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Anatoliy Zagorodniy.

Serhiy Dembitsky, Doctor of Sociology, Leading Research Fellow at the Institute of Sociology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and Mykola Slyusarevskyy, Director of the Institute of Social and Political Psychology of the National Academy of Educational Sciences of Ukraine, Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Educational Sciences of Ukraine.

According to the results of these studies, the process of formation of territorial and state identity of citizens was actively taking place in Ukraine, the main basis of which is the awareness of the imperative of independence of our state. In mid-February 2022, this process, according to many sociological indicators, approached its maximum. Thus, 79.2% of citizens believed that although there are many obstacles in the way of our statehood, Ukraine should still be independent. It is noted that in conditions of war, factors related to the morale and psychological state of people become especially important for victory. First of all, it is about their unity, faith in victory, support for the army and political leadership of Ukraine.

People′s Deputy of Ukraine Victoria Podgorna, President of the National Academy of Educational Sciences of Ukraine Vasyl Kremen, members of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Academicians Yaroslav Yatskiv, Vadym Loktev and others took part in the discussion of the reports.

The discussion praised the timeliness and depth of research of scientific institutions of the two academies. Victoria Podgorna drew attention to the need to publish a joint report on both studies and bring it to the attention of all Committees of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Vasyl Kremen stressed the success of the joint report and noted the importance of uniting the efforts of powerful institutions in the field of sociology and social psychology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the National Academy of Educational Sciences of Ukraine.

In general, the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Presidium of the National Academy of Educational Sciences of Ukraine state that the invasion of the Russian Federation into Ukraine has many devastating consequences for the citizens of our country. But at the same time in Ukrainian society there are significant positive changes of socio-psychological nature, caused by the activation of mobilization resources of citizens. In view of this, one of the important and relevant research areas in the field of social sciences and humanities is the study of the socio-psychological state of the population of Ukraine.

Participants of the joint meeting of the Presidium of the NAS of Ukraine and the NAES of Ukraine approved the work of scientists from the Institute of Sociology of the NAS of Ukraine and the Institute of Social and Political Psychology of the NAES of Ukraine to study this issue.
