It is also noted that 35% of those surveyed approve of Zelensky's performance, while 57% don't. Also, 23% approve of the actions of Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Dmytro Razumkov (55% disapprove and 23% find it difficult to assess). Meanwhile, only 14% approve Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal's performance (59% disapprove and 27% find it hard to assess).

The poll was run on September 3-6 via face-to-face interviews among the population aged 18 and older. Some 2,000 adult respondents were polled in all regions of Ukraine except Crimea and other Russia-occupied parts of Ukraine, namely certain districts in Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The margin of error is no more than 2.2%.
