KIEV, October 22. /TASS/. About 40% of Ukrainians are ready to take to the streets again to demonstrate if the authorities fail to push ahead with the expected reform and default on their promises, as seen in the results of a Gorshenin Institute opinion poll published by the Levy Bereg (Left Bank) periodical.
At the same time, 49% of Ukrainians disapprove of such an attitude.
When it comes to foreign policy, Ukrainians tend to choose membership in the European Union and NATO — 63.6% of the polled support rapprochement with the EU, and 13.6% of the respondents would like to see their country’s integration with Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Neither idea looks appealing enough to 14.6% of the polled, and 8.1% are hesitant.
Ukraine’s NATO membership would get 53.4% of the votes, one third of Ukrainians (33.6%) would oppose it, 5.6% would not go to vote at all, and 7.4% remained undecided or refused to reply.
Ukraine’s national opinion poll was held by the Gorshenin Institute on October 12-21, 2014. The pollster asked 2,000 men and women above 18 years of age. The error margin was no higher than 2.2%.
