Ukrainians most concerned about unemployment, corruption and war – poll
Ukrainians have so far been more concerned with issues such as unemployment and employment, corruption, the economic crisis, the war in Donbas and the return of the Crimea annexed by Russia.
These data from a sociological study were published by the president of the Ukrainian Institute for Social Research named after A. Yaremenko Olga Balakireva at a press conference, reports a correspondent for Ukrinform.
“If we look at people’s direct responses, I would put unemployment, corruption, tariffs, the economy and, of course, war in the first place,” said the sociologist.
According to the survey, 95% of respondents said they were dissatisfied with their standard of living. At the same time, Balakireva stressed that this response should be seen as a “cumulative group characterized by low wages, low pensions, low social benefits, high tariffs” and other people problems.
At the same time, separately, the question of unemployment and employment concerns 32% of respondents, the war in Donbas and the return of Crimea – 28%, the economic crisis – 27%, the coronavirus and the pandemic of quarantine – 22%, medical reform – 22%, corruption and patronage – 14%

Balakireva explained that these problems were determined by open-ended questions, that is, people had to name up to 5 problems that most affected them.
The survey was carried out from June 10 to 19 using the face-to-face method at the respondents’ homes. More than 3,000 people participated in the social survey in all regions of Ukraine, with the exception of the temporarily occupied territories of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions and the Crimea.
The statistical difference is 1.1 to 1.9%.
