Ukrainians believe that systemic corruption presents as much of a danger to Ukraine’s development as the ongoing Russian invasion, according to a survey published by sociological research agency Rating on April 4.

The survey was conducted on behalf of the Center for Analysis and Sociological Research of the International Republican Institute (IRI) and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

When asked to name the biggest threats to Ukraine's national development, respondents named the following risks:

  • 51% of respondents mentioned Corruption in government

  • 46% mentioned Russian military aggression

The poll was conducted across the entire government-controlled Ukrainian territory using CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews) — phone interviews using a computer model based on a random sample of phone numbers.

The sample did not include Ukrainian citizens abroad.

The survey's probable error does not exceed 2.2%, with a confidence level of 0.95.
