Only 13% of Ukrainians believe that elections in Donbas territories, not controlled by the Government of Ukraine, may facilitate settlement of the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

Such results of the poll were presented by Maria Zolkina, the political analyst of the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation at a briefing in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Only 13% of Ukrainians believe that elections in the territories, not controlled by the Government of Ukraine, are the measure which may facilitate settlement of the conflict in Donbas. Even a smaller number of respondents, 6%, believe that amnesty could be such a measure,” she said.

Zolkina noted that 43% of Ukrainians had stated that no elections could soon be held in the militant-controlled territories in Donbas.

According to her, the option of granting a specific status to Donbas does not find support among the majority of the population. Only 13% of respondents believe it would help resolve the conflict.
