KIEV, December 25. /TASS/. A new survey paints a bleak picture, finding that the number of Ukrainians who are unhappy with the country's standard of living has reached record figures over the past 10 years.
The Vesti newspaper reported on Thursday, citing a survey by the US-based Gallup company, that Ukrainians rate their current lives at a 4.3 on average on the 10-point scale, down from 4.8 in 2013, and the lowest ever measured since 2000s.
Some 66% of respondents in western Ukraine said the country’s economy is getting worse, compared with 55% last year. The majority of citizens in south-eastern Ukraine (80%) said the country’s economy has weakened by 20%, year-on-year.
Gallup experts found that the major factors that influence the perception of the quality of life are the ongoing conflict in south-eastern Ukraine, the foreign currency rates and the level of unemployment.
