Ratings and direction of the country’s development: public opinion of Ukrainians after two years of Volodymyr Zelensky’s presidency
A nationwide survey of electoral preferences of Ukrainians was conducted by the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation in cooperation with the Razumkov Centre sociological service from 14th to 19th of May 2021 across all regions except for Crimea and the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. 2020 respondents aged 18 and over have been surveyed. The theoretical sampling error does not exceed 2.3%.
The survey was funded within the MATRA project of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Assessment of the direction of the country’s development. The majority of respondents are convinced that the country is developing in the wrong direction (62%). Only 20% have the opposite opinion. Such skeptical assessments are generally inherent in Ukrainian society and are stable almost constantly, except for a short period after the presidential election.
