IFAK Ukraine Director General Serhiy Hovorukha said at a press conference on April 19 that another 50% of respondents think that Ukraine is itself seeking EU membership, whereas the EU does not want to see Ukraine as a member, UKRINFORM reports.
Respondents said that European Union countries were not trying to do all they could to advance Ukraine's membership of the EU (46% in case of the EU in general, 40% in case of Germany, and 36% in case of Poland).
A third of Ukrainians (31%) think that Ukraine's possible accession to the EU will worsen relations between Ukraine and Russia, 37% said that this would not seriously influence these relations, and one in ten Ukrainians said that Ukraine's joining the EU would improve relations between the two countries.
Around a third of respondents (28%) said that Ukraine would be able to create a free trade area with the EU within a year. Nearly the same number of those surveyed (30%) said that Ukrainians would be able to travel to the countries of the Schengen area without visas in a year.
The survey was conducted on March 12-24 as part of a project, entitled "Five facts about Ukrainians," in the cities with a population of over 50,000. The survey's margin of error is 2.5%.
