Ukrainians
lose interest in reading every year, just like the rest of the world. Some 43
percent of Ukrainians did not read a single a book over the last year,
according to the recent Ukrainian survey conducted within the Book Platform, an
EU-funded project dedicated to publishing and book distribution business. Overall an average Ukrainian
reads around 4
books a year.
This rate is much lower than in Europe or the U.S.

Russians
though read even less than Ukrainians – 46 percent of Russians did not read
books last year, while in the UK only 34 percent said they did without books
last year and only 19 percent of such people in the U.S.

Yet many in
Ukraine believe they are
good readers. “78 percent of Ukrainians responded they read books,” says
Viktoriya Brynza, a sociologist and analyst of expert company Pro.mova, which
was among the companies which conducted the survey.
