You're reading: Ukraine on eve of parliamentary elections

Overall they suggest that
residents of Ukraine are relatively patriotic (including in the eastern
regions), have not radically altered their outlooks as a result of the new
language law, and though they are primarily oriented toward the European Union,

anticipate any serious threats to their country from the larger neighbor.

The polls suggest a growing
maturity and confidence among Ukrainians concerning the future of the
independent state that is rarely highlighted in media reports that focus purely
on politics and the elite. On the other hand, there remain significant
differences in outlook between the east and the south vis-à-vis the western
regions in almost every poll. But these divisions are less polarized than has
been the case in the past.

sociological group “Rating” conducted a poll on the territorial boundaries of
