Ukrainians have the greatest confidence in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky and volunteers. Such data from an all-Ukrainian survey was posted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) on January 13.
"The Armed Forces continue to enjoy the most trust in Ukraine, and over the past year (between December 2021 and December 2022), the level of trust has increased from 72% to 96%. The balance of trust-distrust in the AFU (i.e. the difference between the share of those who trust and those who do not trust) is +96% (it was +60% in December 2021). This is followed by trust in the President of Ukraine and trust in volunteers", - the message said.
If in December 2021, 27% trusted the president (and the balance was negative -23%, that is, there were more of those who did not trust than trusted), then over the year, the figure increased to 84%, and the balance is +80%.
In the case of volunteers, trust increased from 68% to 84%, and the balance improved from +57% to +81%.
There is some deterioration in attitudes towards the church: the share of those who trust the church has decreased from 51% to 44%, and the balance has decreased from +27% to +22%.
The study took place during December 4-27, 2022. 995 respondents aged 18 years and over living in all regions of Ukraine (except for the Autonomous Republic of Crimea) were interviewed using the method of telephone interviews based on a random sample of mobile numbers.
