EU integration for Ukrainians is a priority (poll)

41% of the population of Ukraine believe that joining the European Union should be the priority over the Customs Union.

These are the results of a nationwide poll conducted by the Foundation "Democratic Initiatives of Ilko Kucheriv" together ​​with "Ukrainian Sociology service".

The Customs Union is the priority for 33% of Ukrainian. Meanwhile, 25% of the population are undecided.

Thus, in the case of a referendum on joining the EU, 45% of the population would vote for accession, 28% - against it, 9% would not take part in the referendum, and 17.5% could not decide on their choice.

If there was a referendum on joining the CU, 38% would vote for it, 30% - against it, 10% would not take part in the referendum and 21% are undecided.
