In the event of snap parliamentary elections, six parties would be elected to a new Ukrainian parliament with “Servant of the People” and “Opposition Platform – For Life” parties counting on the largest quantity of votes. These results were presented in the research conducted by the International Research Сentre BURI-Ukraine (The Belgium-Ukraine Research Institute, Belgium) during December 22-25, 2021.

According to the survey, the respondents’ answers to the question “How would you vote if the elections to the Supreme Council (Verkhovna Rada) of Ukraine are to be held this Sunday?” were distributed as follows: “Servant of the People” – 18.1%, “Opposition Platform – For Life” – 16.7%, “The European Solidarity” – 16.2%, “Batkivshchyna” – 10.8%, “Rozumna Polityka” – 6.2%, and “Syla I Chest” – 5.3% (among those who will take part in the voting and have decided on their choice). The other parties do not pass the 5-percent threshold.

When asked about the extent to which Volodymyr Zelenskiy is coping with his duties as the President of Ukraine, the majority of respondents said “coping poorly” (68.6%). At the same time, only 6.1% of the respondents said that Zelensky “copes well” with his duties.

The overwhelming majority of respondents are sure that as a result of the investigation based on the Pandora Papers the reputation of the Ukrainian authorities in the world will deteriorate. In comparison with the previous research, this indicator increased from 67.7% to 72.3%. The opposite opinion was expressed by 1.0% of the respondents.

Also 55.6% of the respondents are sure that results of the investigation on the basis of Pandora Papers will also lead to the fall of the rating of Volodymyr Zelensky and the party “Servant of People” in Ukraine. In November, the number of such answers was 52.5% of the total number of respondents.

The survey was conducted on the whole territory of Ukraine, except for temporarily uncontrolled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and Crimea, by the international research centre BURI-Ukraine (The Belgium-Ukraine Research Institute, Belgium) during December 22-25, 2021. The survey method was telephone interviews based on random sampling of mobile numbers. Total number of respondents was 2,010 persons. Probable error margin is not exceeding 2.2%.
