It is noted that 44% of Ukrainians consider the presidential elections to be the main event of 2019.
“15% - the elections to the Verkhovna Rada; 13% - march on the football team of Ukraine to the final of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship,” the message said.
Every tenth Ukrainian considers the strengthening of hryvnia as the event of the year and each fifth Ukrainian – resumption of the Normandy Format.
The survey was held on December 13-17; 2,500 Ukrainians over the age of 18.
24 Ukrainian sailors and 11 political prisoners - already ex-political prisoners - captured by Russia over the past five years, returned to Ukraine. Faces of the released Ukrainian sailors, left activist Oleksandr Kolchenko, filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, journalist Roman Sushchenko, Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov and the rest of former captives were seen in the crowd.
