The share of those dissatisfied with the president's work is 45%, according to a survey conducted by Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS).

"Having assessed the authorities' performance in May-June this year, 38% said they approve President Zelensky's actions and statements (47% in May), while 45% do not approve (37% in May). The difference between the share of those who approve the president's actions and statements and the share of those who disapprove has become negative for the first time in the past year, reaching 'minus' 7 p.p.," it said.

Some 23% of respondents approve the work of the Cabinet of Ministers (24% in May), while 59% disapprove (61% in May).

"The balance of assessments is negative and stands at 'minus' 36 p.p. Compared with May, the balance of assessments of the government's performance has almost remained unchanged," sociologists say.

The work of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, is approved by 21% of Ukrainians (22% in May), while 62% disapprove (65% in May).

"The balance of assessments is negative and stands at 'minus' 41 p.p.," the report says.

The survey was conducted on June 20-23 through computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI) using a random selection of cell numbers. The sample is representative of the adult population (aged 18 and older). The survey was conducted in settlements across Ukraine with the exception of Russia-occupied Crimea and certain districts in Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The study involved 2,000 respondents.

The margin of error does not exceed 2.2% for indicators close to 50%, 2.1% for indicators close to 25%, and 1.4% for indicators close to 10%.
