The majority of Ukrainians believe that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is directly responsible for dealing with corruption in the government and in military administrations.
Source: Research based on the results of a survey conducted by the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation jointly with the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology in July 2023
Details: The sociologists state that as of early July 2023, 78% of respondents believed that the president of Ukraine is directly responsible for dealing with corruption in the government and in military administrations. Only 18% of respondents disagreed with this statement.
Notably, older Ukrainians are more demanding of the head of state than young people are. 70% of respondents aged 18-29 agree that the head of state is responsible for dealing with corruption. This number is higher among people aged 60+ – 81%.
There are no other significant differences arising from respondents’ personal financial situation or region of residence.
For reference: The survey, conducted by the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation jointly with the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, was carried out face to face from 3 to 17 July 2023, in all oblasts of Ukraine except for the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Donetsk, Luhansk and Kherson oblasts.
In Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv oblasts, the survey was conducted in the Ukrainian-controlled territories in which hostilities are not taking place. 2,011 respondents over 18 were surveyed.
