DIPLOMACY–2021: Expectations of Ukrainian society
15 December 2020, 13:42

What are the expectations of Ukrainians from Ukrainian diplomacy and foreign partners in 2021? What foreign leader do Ukrainians consider the most trustworthy? How do the respondents see the settlement of the war in Donbas? To find the answers the New Europe Center commissioned a nationwide opinion poll on the expectations of Ukrainian society.


The survey sample covers 2,029 respondents. The poll was conducted by the Info Sapiens research agency using the CAPI method (computer-assisted personal interviews). The sample is representational for the adult (aged 18 and older) population of Ukraine with regard to sex, age, size of the locality and regions of residence. The survey excludes the Autonomous Republic of Crimea; in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the poll was conducted only in the government-controlled area. The maximum theoretical error does not exceed 2.2 percent. The poll was conducted from 6 to 19 November 2020.

The paper was presented on the event “Diplomacy 2021: Government’s priorities, expectations of society” (December, 16).


The research was published within the framework of the Think Tank Development Initiative for Ukraine, carried out by the International Renaissance Foundation in partnership with the Open Society Initiative for Europe (OSIFE) with financial support of the Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine.
