Some 45% of Ukrainians believe that events in Ukraine are going in the right direction, while 33% hold the opposite view, according to a survey conducted by the sociological service of the Razumkov Center together with the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation.

The results of the survey presented at Ukrinform showed that after the start of Russia's full-scale aggression against Ukraine, the share of citizens who believe that events in Ukraine are going in the right direction has significantly increased.
