The absolute majority of Ukrainians think that in 10 years Ukraine will become a prosperous member of the EU.
This is evidenced by the results of the survey conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology.
During the interview, respondents were asked to choose which of the two scenarios for the future of Ukraine - optimistic or pessimistic - they would agree to a greater extent.
Among those surveyed, 63% fully agree with the opinion that Ukraine will be a prosperous country within the EU in 10 years, and 26% rather agree with it.
Only 5% of respondents have pessimistic expectations that in 10 years Ukraine will be a devastated country with the outflow of people.
Although optimism decreases a little from West to East, in fact, in all regions the absolute majority see the future of Ukraine with hope (from 90% in the West to 76% in the East).
"It should be taken into account that the current region East is Kharkiv and Donetsk regions, where the level of destruction and shelling is especially intense. Despite this, 76% believe in a better future (and only 14% see the future as a ruin). It is also important to pay attention to the South, which is also marked by intensive fighting, but where 89% see Ukraine as successful in 10 years (with only 7% of pessimists)," the sociologists note.
Among all age categories, the vast majority are optimistic about the future of Ukraine. In particular, among 18-29-year-olds, the figure is 94%.
