A new poll conducted in Ukraine shows a majority of the country’s residents see little progress being made by the government on the key issues of tackling corruption and improving the economy.
The survey, undertaken by the International Republican Institute and funded by the Canadian government, was based on face-to-face interviews with over 2,000 respondents from across all regions of Ukraine in late September and early October. Separatist militant-controlled areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts and Russian-occupied Crimea were not included.
“This poll reinforces the trend of public frustration that we’ve seen in previous polls, and indicates that the window of opportunity for the government to build public support is rapidly closing,” according to Stephen Nix, the International Republican Institute’s Eurasia regional director.
