Poroshenko’s Electoral Crisis: 80% of Ukrainians see Country ‘Moving in Wrong Direction’


KIEV, Ukraine – At the present time, over 80% of Ukrainian citizens say that Ukraine is moving in the wrong direction.

This was announced on Monday, January 28, by Alexey Borovsky, director of the sociological company Seetarget, based on the results of a sociological research.

This no doubt will foreshadow and help predict the possible results of the upcoming election in Ukraine – opposition parties of the left, and those considered ‘pro-Russian’ however have been banned since the U.S installed coup government took power in 2014. This leaves room only for nationalist populists – all, however, also have strong ties to the U.S.

On the whole, Russian and Ukrainian experts agree that Tymoshenko will emerge the strongest from these trends.

“The absolute majority estimate the direction of the country’s movement as negative.
