92% of the audience of the Ukrainian TV channel NewsOne voted for a return of the regime of the last President Viktor Yanukovych
On Saturday, live on air viewers were asked to choose one of two possible answers to the question “Who would you vote for — the last Criminal government or the current one?”. From 46,686 people only 8% supported the policies of the current president Petro Poroshenko.

On October 23rd, the social research center “Sofiya” published the results of a poll, according to which 79% of the population in varying degrees don’t approve of Poroshenko’s work as head of state. The answer “I completely approve of the activities of the president” was chosen by only 1.6% of respondents.

On October 17th the Prosecutor-General of Ukraine Yury Lutsenko accused the former president of the country Viktor Yanukovych of appropriating assets worth $40 billion. According to the head of the supervising department, this is comparable to the annual budget of the country.

Yanukovych was the president of Ukraine from 2010 to 2014. After the violent change of power as a result of Euromaidan — mass protest actions in Kiev and other cities — he left the country. In Ukraine, several criminal cases were opened concerning the former head of State, his property on the territory of the country was arrested.
