Poll Most Ukrainians Want A Unified Country
DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — A new poll finds that a strong majority of Ukrainians want their country to remain a single, unified state, including in the largely Russian-speaking east where a pro-Russia insurgency has been fighting for autonomy.
The poll by the Pew Research Center in Washington finds that 77 percent of people nationwide want Ukraine to maintain its current borders, while 70 percent in the east feel the same.
It's 58 percent among Russian only speakers.
The poll, conducted April 5-23, has a margin of error of about 3.5 percentage points.
