Nearly three quarters of Ukrainians believe their country is moving in the wrong direction, according to a poll conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS).
Some 74.3% of respondents chose option B when asked whether Ukraine was moving in the right direction or not. Ten percent chose option A, and 15.7% were either undecided or refused to answer the question.
The least number of respondents, who believe in the correctness of the national course, live in eastern Ukraine (6.6%) and Donbas (4.6%).
