18% of respondents admitted they gave bribes last year, 79% claim they didn’t, 3% find it difficult to reply, it is reported in the survey conducted by sociological group Rating.

Three years ago, in March 2013, it was reported that 27% of citizens admitted to giving bribes, 68% claimed they didn’t do it, 6% of respondents found it difficult to reply.

54% of respondents believe corruption is a disease that hinders society from development, whereas 40% suppose corruption is a mechanism Ukrainian society cannot exist without. Within the last three years the data hasn’t changed, though Ukrainians start to perceive corruption in a different way: whereas, back in 2013, 37% of respondents justified bribes in case it solved an important private issue, in 2016 just 13% think this way.

The survey of sociological group Rating was conducted among 2,000 respondents on 14-22 January 2016.
