The Ukrainian authorities have got a record low publicly accepted rating

Summary of Disinformation

According to a poll conducted by the Ukrainian TV channel “News One”, the Ukrainian authorities have got a record low publicly accepted rating.

[A video on the screen in the studio shows results of the poll]:

Question:   “If you have a choice now – to choose the previous criminal government or the current one, for whom would you vote?”

Answers:   “For the previous one – 92 %, For the current one – 8%”

Disproof

Polls conducted by the media reflect the opinion of the audience of these media, and not the entire society. The Ukrainian TV channel "News One" has been criticized by Ukrainians for its pro-Kremlin stances. As for the publicly accepted rating of the "current government" in Ukraine defined by the "News One" as a "record low" and amounting to 8 % now, see for example a list of other polls conducted: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_polling_for_the_Ukrainian_presidential_election,_2019

There are no reliable polls that suggest that a majority of Ukrainians support the idea of Yanukovich return to power. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/report/92-of-ukrainian-tv-viewers-want-yanukovich-back/
