The results were presented today by Director of the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation, Iryna Bekeshkina, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"The majority of the population of Ukraine – 51% – does not support the possible introduction of visa regime with the Russian Federation; 33% of respondents support this decision, 16% are undecided," Bekeshkina said.
According to her, the negative attitude to the possible visa regime is reasoned by the fact that 51% of Ukrainians have relatives and friends who live in Russia.
The poll was conducted on June 9-13, 2017. 2,018 respondents were interviewed in all the regions of Ukraine, except for Crimea and the occupied territories in Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
