Zelenskyy tops trust survey among politicians – survey

KYIV. Feb 7 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Among Ukrainian politicians, officials and government officials, incumbent President Volodymyr Zelenskyy inspires the most trust among Ukrainians. Some 69% of citizens trust him, according to the results of a survey conducted by the Razumkov Center and presented at a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine agency.

In second place is the head of Mykolaiv Regional Military Administration Vitaliy Kim (58%), in third – Serhiy Prytula (54%). Ukrainians also trust Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba (50% of respondents reported trust).

At the same time, Ukrainians most distrust head of the Batkivschyna faction Yulia Tymoshenko (80.5%), Oleksiy Arestovych (79%) and head of the parliamentary group Platform for Life and Peace Yuriy Boiko (78%).

Ukrainians also expressed a high degree of distrust in leader of the European Solidarity party Petro Poroshenko (70%), MP from the Servant of the People faction Mariana Bezuhla (66%), head of the Servant of the People faction David Arakhamia (58%), head of the Presidential Office of Ukraine Andriy Yermak (55.5%) and Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Ruslan Stefanchuk (50.5%).

They more often expressed trust than distrust in adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podoliak (44% and 32%, respectively), head of the Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Maliuk (40% and 22%, respectively), and Minister of Defense of Ukraine Rustem Umerov (33% and 27%, respectively) and to Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Ihor Klymenko (28% and 23%, respectively).

The shares of those who trust and do not trust Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksiy Danilov (36% and 35.5%, respectively) do not significantly differ statistically.

They more often expressed distrust than trust in Denys Shmyhal (45% do not trust him, 34% trust him), Vitali Klitschko (44% and 39%, respectively), Iryna Vereschuk (42% and 34%, respectively), Danylo Hetmantsev (33%, and 20% respectively).

The survey was conducted by the sociological service of the Razumkov Center from January 19 to January 25, 2024, as part of the “Join In!” Community Engagement Program, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Pact in Ukraine.

The face-to-face survey was conducted in Vinnytsia, Volyn, Dnipropetrovsk, Zhytomyr, Zakarpattia, Zaporozhia, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kyiv, Kirovohrad, Lviv, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Poltava, Rivne, Sumy, Ternopil, Kharkiv, Kherson, Khmelnytsky, Cherkasy, Chernihiv, Chernivtsi regions and Kyiv (in Zaporozhia, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, Kherson regions - only in those territories controlled by the Ukrainian government and in which hostilities are not taking place).

The survey was conducted using a stratified multi-stage sample using random sampling at the first stages of sampling and a quota method for selecting respondents at the final stage (when respondents were selected according to gender and age quotas). The structure of the sample population reproduces the demographic structure of the adult population of the territories where the survey was conducted as of the beginning of 2022 (by age, gender, type of settlement).

Some 2,000 respondents aged 18 years and older were surveyed. The theoretical sampling error does not exceed 2.3%. At the same time, additional systematic deviations in the sample may be due to the consequences of Russian aggression, in particular, the forced evacuation of millions of citizens.
