Director of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Mattes Buhbe pointed out as he commented the poll's data that these indicators are slightly higher than in Europe as a whole. In his opinion, this indicates a severe trauma caused to the Ukrainians by the war in Donbas.

Buhbe also believes that this is a strong political signal for the government. "I have a feeling that many Ukrainians leave politics to politicians. It's hard for them to judge who is better, but a government incapable of securing peace will have big problems in the next elections," Buhbe said
