The research of Analytical Center RATING Pro shows that Ukrainians are inclined to strengthen their conservative views. In their opinion, among the most prohibited things should be access to soft drugs, same-sex relationships, free sale of weapons, and prostitution. More loyalty is displayed toward abortions.

The dynamics (since 2012) demonstrates an increase of support for the ban of access to soft drugs, free sale of weapons to citizens, same-sex relations, and employment of migrants from other countries. Attitude toward liberalization of erotic films demonstration on TV and prostitution has not changed. Instead, attitude toward abortions and death penalty abolition has become more loyal. The overall trend remains as follows: the younger the person, the higher the level of his/her income and education, the more liberal views he/she demonstrates. Moreover, women and rural residents are generally more conservative in their beliefs.
