KIEV, July 20. /TASS/. More than a half of Ukrainians are negative about the activities of the country’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and President Petro Poroshenko, according to an opinion poll conducted by the Kiev International Institute of Sociology made public on Monday.
"As many as 55.4% of respondents older than 18 assessed the work of President Petro Poroshenko negatively. A total of 66.7% said they were negative about the work of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk," the poll results said.
Among the questions asked was the one about possible ways to settle the conflict in Donbas. According to the poll results, a total of 56.8% of Ukrainians said the best path to a lasting settlement was further peace talks on the basis of the Minsk agreements.
The poll was conducted in all of Ukraine’s regions but for territories that are not controlled by the Kiev government. It involved 2,044 respondents in 110 populated localities. The poll was organized in the wake of the incident in Mukachevo and after the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) had referred to the Constitutional Court draft amendments to the constitution concerning decentralization of power.
