Ukrainians want EU to play greater role, opinion poll reveals

Ukrainians feel that their country has good relations with the EU, and want to see the EU play a greater role, especially in priority areas such as economic development and energy security. This was just one of the findings of a wide-ranging survey carried out as part of the Opinion Polling and Research (OPPOL) project, funded under the 2007-2010 European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI) regional information and communication programme

The survey aimed to generate better information about awareness, understanding and perception of the EU and the role it plays in Ukraine. The first phase was a baseline study, which interviewed opinion leaders to evaluate their perception, knowledge and appraisal of the EU. The second phase involved an opinion poll which questioned members of the general public.

The majority of opinion leadersare positive about Ukrainian-EU relations, with three in four saying Ukraine has good relations with the EU, 96% describing it as an important partner, 91% a good neighbour, and a striking 85% saying Ukraine has benefited from EU policies in the country. Within the general public, more than six in ten (62%) say that Ukraine and the EU have very or fairly good relations.

Key findings and insights from the Ukrainian survey can be found here and in Ukrainian
