KYIV. Feb 7 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Among state and public institutions, trust is most often expressed in the Armed Forces of Ukraine - 95% of Ukrainians, according to the results of a survey conducted by the Razumkov Center and presented at the press center of the Interfax-Ukraine agency on Wednesday.

In addition, Ukrainians trust volunteer units (85%), the State Emergency Service (82%), the National Guard of Ukraine (81%), volunteer organizations (78%), the State Border Guard Service (77%), the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine (69%), the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) (68%), the President of Ukraine (64%), the church (61%), the National Police of Ukraine (58%), public organizations (55%) and the National Bank (53%).

Also, trust is more often expressed than distrust in the head of the city (town, village) in which the respondent lives (49% and 43%, respectively), the Ukrainian media (47% and 43%, respectively), and the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights (respectively 42.5% and 31%).

Trust and distrust are expressed in approximately equal degrees towards the council of the city (towns, villages) in which the respondent lives (43% and 45%, respectively).

The majority of respondents express distrust of the state apparatus (75% do not trust), political parties (72%), Verkhovna Rada (70%), courts (judicial system as a whole) (68%), government (64%), prosecutor's office (60%) , commercial banks (53%), Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) (52%), the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) (51%) and National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) (51%).

Also, distrust is more often expressed than trust in trade unions (43% do not trust them, while 23% trust them).

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.
