Most Ukrainians believe the conflict in eastern Ukraine is the most urgent problem in the state.

Deputy Director of the Sociological Service of the Razumkov Center Mykhailo Mishchenko said this, while presenting the results of a study conducted jointly with the SOCIS Center for Social and Marketing Research, the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology and the Rating Sociological Group, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Suring the survey respondents most often call the war in eastern Ukraine as the most pressing issue. This answer was given by 51.3% of those polled. Social and economic problems were also mentioned, in particular, a rise in prices for basic goods, inflation - 37%, low wages or pensions - 36%, unemployment - 27%, high utility tariffs - almost 27%," Mishchenko said.

According to him, "the rise in prices troubles Ukrainians regardless of their income level." At the same time, the size of wages and pensions is still more of a concern for people with low income.

The expert also said that residents of the eastern regions were more concerned about low salaries and pensions.

The all-Ukrainian sociological survey was conducted from October 28 to November 14. A total of 20,000 respondents were interviewed.
