About 80% of Ukrainians don’t trust Russian media - research
About 80% of Ukrainians, aged 18 years, give no credit to the Russian media, and more than 7% have faith in them. Such are the results of a survey conducted from 1 to 7 November 2019 by the sociological service of the Razumkov Center, as Detektor Media reported.
54% of respondents told to give credit to the Ukrainian media, but almost 36% of respondents said they did not believe in them (12.2% of persons don’t trust them at all, 23.7% of persons rather don’t trust them).
In addition, according to the survey, 19.9% of respondents believed that the level of freedom of speech has changed for the better since the beginning of 2019; 13.7% of respondents thought that it had changed for the worse; 58.1% found it remained the same.
The survey was made by the Razumkov Center Sociological Service from November 1 to November 7, 2019. 2015 respondents aged 18 years and older were interviewed in all regions of Ukraine, with the exception of Crimea and the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, on a sample that represents the adult population of the country, based on major socio-demographic indices. The sample of the survey was multi-stage, fortuitous with the quota selection of the respondents at the last stage. The theoretical sampling error (excluding design effect) did not exceed 2.3% with a probability of 0.95.
