Only 5% of respondents said they had seen a decrease in corruption, while 15% of people said they were unable to evaluate the scale of the problem.
More than a third of Ukrainians believe that the best way to fight corruption is shooting, as is done in China. Thus, 16% of respondents are absolutely convinced of this, and 19.5% partially agree. Herewith, only 5% of respondents voiced their support for the return of the death penalty.
Regionally, the most radical attitude towards corrupt persons dominate in Mykolaiv, Chernivtsi and Donetsk regions, although more than 40% of respondents either strongly disagree or tend to disagree with the most severe measure.
