OREANDA-NEWS. Almost 70 percent of Ukrainians believe that things in the country are developing in the wrong direction. The fact that citizens considered the path of development of Ukraine false is evidenced by the data of a survey conducted by the sociological service of the Razumkov Center from January 29 to February 3.

Only 13.8 percent of Ukrainians disagree with the opinion of the majority and believe that things are going well in the country, and 16.5 percent have not decided on the answer to the question.

At the same time, 15.6 percent of respondents believe that Ukraine will be able to overcome the existing problems in the next few years, 51.2 percent - that it is able to overcome them in the longer term. Another 20 percent of respondents are confident that the country will not be able to cope with the difficulties.

Also, 69 percent of respondents assess the economic situation in Ukraine as "very bad" or "rather bad", and only 2 percent - as "good" or "very good", and another 26 percent - as "not bad and not good."

The survey was conducted throughout Ukraine, except for the uncontrolled territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. The study involved citizens aged 18 and older. The sample is representative by age, sex, region and type of settlement. In the course of personal interviews, 2,019 respondents were interviewed.
