Results of the poll about the social-economic situation in various regions of Ukraine

   

The Institute of Sociology of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine held a sociological poll of what population thinks about social-economic and social-political situations in Ukraine. The alarming figures, when about 50% of the pollees answer that it is already impossible to endure the beggarly life, are answering the question ‘Does a political crisis exist in our society?’ The proportion of the protesting electorate becomes very dangerous for the stability of the state.
