On the one-year anniversary of Petro Poroshenko’s election as the Maidan regime’s president, it has become clear that the Maidan revolution has brought to power a government and perhaps a regime of which the majority of Ukrainians disapprove, according to a recent survey carried out by Ukraine’s TNS agency. Poroshenko won the 25 may 2014 presidential election with 54.7 percent of the vote.

According to the poll, 51 percent of Ukrainians disapprove of President Poroshenko’s performance, while only 17 percent approve. Regarding the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk, 68 percent disapprove, while a mere 8 percent approve. Regarding the efforts to stabilize the situation in the country undertaken by the authorities overall, 31 per regard their efforts as “absolutely unsatisfactory,” 28 percent see them as “for the most part” unsatisfactory, 37 percent – consider them “incomplete and untimely,” and only 1 percent of Ukrainians see the regime’s efforts as “completely fulfilling their obligations” ( http://vesti-ukr.com/strana/101024-ukraincy-vruchili-jacenjuku-i-poroshenko-chernuju-metku).
