Some 45% of Ukrainians trust President Volodymyr Zelensky and 16% trust Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, according to a survey conducted by the Rating Sociological Group.

"Volodymyr Zelensky leads the rating of trust in politicians, with 45% of respondents who trust him and 52% who don't trust him. Some 31% trust [Batkivshchyna party leader] Yulia Tymoshenko and 68% don't trust her. Some 25% trust [co-chair of the Opposition Platform – For Life party] Yuriy Boiko and 57% don't trust him. Some 26% trust [former Ukrainian President and European Solidarity party leader] Petro Poroshenko and 72% don't trust him. Some 18% trust [chairman of the Opposition Platform – For Life party] Viktor Medvedchuk and 70% don't trust him. Some 16% trust Denys Shmyhal, 51% don't trust him, and 28% said they hadn't heard about him," the poll revealed.

If the presidential election in Ukraine took place in the near future, 27.7% of those who will go to polling stations and have already decided on their choice would vote for Zelensky, 13.4% for Poroshenko, 11.4% for Tymoshenko, and 10.1% for Boiko. At the same time, 7.8% would cast their ballots for Strength and Honour party leader Ihor Smeshko, 6.1% for former Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, 6% for media owner Yevhenii Muraiev, and 4.1% for Verkhovna Rada Chairman Dmytro Razumkov.

Support for other candidates is below 3%.

According to the poll, the parliamentary rating is headed by the Servant of the People party, with support from 24.1% of those who will vote and have already decided on their choice.

Some 14.3% are ready to support the European Solidarity party, 12.8% - Batkivshchyna, and 12.4% - Opposition Platform - For Life.

At the same time, the survey revealed that a quarter of Ukrainians (25%) said their country was moving in the right direction, 67% said it was moving in the wrong direction, and 8% were undecided. Experts added that there were relatively more young people among those who say that the country is moving in the right direction.
