60% of Ukrainians questioned do not support the Verkhovna Rada’s vote for the law on the sale of land.
The results of a survey conducted from April 7 to 11 by the International Institute of Sociology in Kiev and published on the KIIS website bear witness to this.
“26% of those questioned supported the Verkhovna Rada vote for the law on the sale of land, 60% did not support it,” said the poll.
At the same time, if a pan-Ukrainian referendum on the sale of agricultural land takes place in the coming week, 26% of those who vote would vote for the sale of the land; 74% – against the sale of land.

From April 7 to 11, 2020, KIIS conducted a CATI (computer-assisted telephone interview) survey based on a random selection of mobile phone numbers. The sample is representative of the adult population (aged 18 and over) of Ukraine. The sample does not include the territories which are temporarily not controlled by the Ukrainian authorities – the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, certain areas of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. The survey conducted 2,000 interviews.
The statistical error of the sample (with a probability of 0.95 and taking into account the design effect of 1.1) does not exceed: 2.2% for indicators close to 50%, 2.1% for indicators close to 25%, 1.4% – for indicators close to 10%.
