The vast majority, 85 percent, completely or partially agree that deployment of NATO troops in the Baltic region helps Lithuania's security.

The poll also confirmed that Lithuania's NATO membership is supported by the vast majority of population, 83 percent. Compared to a similar survey in 2013, the number of respondents who regard Lithuania's NATO membership very favourably increased more than twice, from 12 to 25.7 percent. The total number of supportive respondents grew by more than 12 percent year-on-year, from 70 percent to 82.5 percent.

1,010 people aged 18-75 were polled. The poll was carried out throughout Lithuania in 65 randomly chosen localities. The survey was commissioned in order to assess opinion changes in the wake of the Ukrainian crisis.
