Regarding the forecast of Euromaidan future, 43 percent of citizens said that its consequences sooner could be negative, while 31 percent of the respondents thought the opposite. Besides, 17 percent said that the Euromaidan would bring no negative consequences.

The Research & Branding Group conducted survey of the public opinion of Ukrainians regarding its assessment of the current situation in Ukraine from December 23 to December 27. The information was collected through personal interviews in 24 regions of Ukraine, Crimea, Kyiv and Sevastopol. The possible margin of error is 2.2 percent.

The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
