KIEV, May 25. /TASS/. More than half of Ukrainians (51%) said they were not satisfied with the activities of President Petro Poroshenko, whereas 17% said they were partially or fully satisfied with them, according to a TNS poll.
The survey revealed that people in Ukraine’s eastern region were dissatisfied with Poroshenko far more often than residents of Kiev (31% and 14% respectively).
As for the attitude towards the government of Arseniy Yatsenhyuk, a mere 8% of Ukrainians said in April their evaluation was positive and 68% said they were dissatisfied with the government’s activities. Such a sharp drop in evaluating the government’s actions must have been triggered by a number of unpopular laws passed recently relating to the country’s tariff policy and also by a number of vitally important laws on reforming the state that have not been passed, the TNS company said.
According to the survey, 31% of those polled described the authorities’ actions to stabilize the situation in the country as totally unsatisfactory, another 28% said the authorities had largely failed to meet their obligations, 37% of the respondents believed the authorities were doing something but not in full measure and untimely, and only 1% said they were confident the government was fully performing its functions.
In general, the index of evaluation of the Ukrainian authorities’ activity is below average (closer to an unsatisfactory assessment) and, beginning with 2015, it has practically stabilized at a rather low level.
Ukraine is one of 80 countries where TNS is operating.
