“57.3% of respondents said Ukraine is going the wrong way,” a senior analyst at the Perspektyva Agency, Oleksandr Liapkalo, said at a press conference hosted by Interfax-Ukraine agency on Wednesday.

According to him, just 25.4% of respondents think that the course is right, while 17.3% found it difficult to say how Ukraine was developing.
