Donetsk, May 11 - DAN. An opinion poll among DPR residents reveled no positive attitude towards Ukrainian current authorities, the Special Status Social Studies Center said.
"The attitude of the DPR residents towards Ukrainian authorities can be characterized as a mistrust (74 percent), hate (15 percent), indifference (11 percent)," the poll among 1,200 responders conducted in April 2018 showed. The poll had a margin of error of 3.2 percent.
Sociologists said that president Petr Poroshenko and the prime minister Vladimir Groisman gained the highest rate of mistrust among DPR residents, 92 and 93 percent, respectively. The remaining responders said that they felt hatred or indifference, when asked about the two notorious politicians.
Overwhelmingly with 80 percent of those interviewed, the February 2014 events in Ukraine were described as a coup d'état, while 20 percent hesitated to provide an estimation.
The Ukrainian People’s Tribunal for investigating war crimes of Petr Poroshenko’s regime against Ukrainian citizens has been established to prosecute Ukrainian politicians and the officials who committed crimes against Donbass. The tribunal heard cases on using armed forces against civilians, formation of illegal armed groups, tortures, looting and robbery.
The UPT charged eight people: Ukraine’s president Petr Poroshenko, the minister of internal affairs Arsen Avakov, secretary of the national security and defense council of Ukraine Aleksandr Turchynov, prime minister Vladimir Groisman, commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko, defense minister Stepan Poltorak, chairman of the Verkhovnaya Rada Andrey Parubiy, ex-prime-minster Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
The Republic's Day is celebrated on May 11, the day when the referendum on the DPR independence took place in 2014. Dozens of events have been organized across the Republic to celebrate it, including a solemn march long the Donetsk main street and a big concert at the Olimpiyskiy stadium. *ot
