KIEV, November 20. /TASS/. Most Ukrainians believe that the goals declared by the leaders of Euro-Maidan at the outbreak of unrest in the country last year have not been reached, suggests an opinion poll taken by the Ukrainian Channel 112.
The poll was held on the eve of the anniversary of the events in downtown Kiev that grew over into a three-months-long tough confrontations and the dislodging of President Viktor Yanukovich.
Exactly a year ago, on November 21, 2013, the former Ukrainian government said it was suspending preparations for the signing of an Association Agreement (AA) with the EU and this sparked mass actions under the motto of ‘Euro-integration’.
When asked about whether or not Euro-Maidan had reached the objectives publicized by its leaders, a total of 87.6% of those polled by Channel 112 answered: “No, there’s been no full resetting of state power. Crimea has been lost and war is raging in the East (in the much-troubled Donetsk and Luhansk regions - TASS).”
Another 6.5% respondents said the goals had been reached but partially and the bulk of demands meted out by protesters on the Maidan remained unfulfilled.
A statement that the goals had been attained and the country had taken a course at integration in Europe was shared by only 5.8%.
