Most support Ukrainian accession to the EU - poll

51% elected Ukrainian accession to the European Union

More than half of Ukrainian (51%) as integration towards selected countries join the European Union.

These are released on Thursday results of a survey by Research & Branding Group, Interfax-Ukraine.

Respondents were selected by quota sample representing the adult population of Ukraine by region of residence (region), gender and age. The volume of sample was 1795 respondents. The expected average sampling error is ± 2,4%. In Ukrainian/український

IMO, Ukrainians should think twice about it and look at what's happened to a few EU countries. Being independent of any union like the EU would give Ukraine much stronger leverage on running their country. If the EU was so great, the UK would've never considered in the least to leave the EU. The best example is, Greece's economic downturns they had. And they're not the only ones having economic issues, which is what the EU's suppose to help out on. The EU is broken. Don't let it break Ukraine. It has TOO MUCH to offer without a union's rules and regulations that keep a country down.
