MOSCOW, June 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Over 40% Russians say Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko represents the interests of the US, EU and Ukraine’s big businesses, as seen from results of a survey conducted by Russia Public Opinion Research Center WCIOM.

The survey’s results, published on the institution’s website, show that every fifth surveyed (21%) said the Ukrainian president was close to nationalists, while 17% are sure Petro Poroshenko pursues his own interests. Some respondents (12%) were sure the new president represented intelligence services.

“Six percent of the surveyed said Poroshenko represents Ukraine’s western and central regions, and only two percent believe the new president observes positions of Ukraine’s eastern and southern regions,” the polling institution reports. “One percent of surveyed Russians said he represented interests of all Ukrainians.”

The survey results show that 63% respondents followed the election campaign, where 19% followed it very closely, and 44% preferred to learn information only from time to time.

Most active followers of the Ukrainian campaign were people living in Moscow and St. Petersburg (89%), elderly people (73%), while every third respondent (36%) did not have any interest to the event, and one percent of the respondents said they learned about the Ukrainian presidential election only from the questions.

First of all, Poroshenko causes lack of trust, the survey results say. That was the response given by 29%. Every fifth person (22%) stated about absolute indifference to the personality of the new Ukrainian president, while others (19%) feel antipathy towards him, and only few (2%) said they trusted Petro Poroshenko.

The poll was conducted on May 31-June 1 among 1,600 people in Russia’s 130 settlements in 42 regions and territories. The statistic margin does not exceed 3.4%.
