Opinions and views of the population of Ukraine on the case of O. Trukhin: the results of a telephone survey conducted on February 5-13, 2022

During February 5-13, 2022, the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) conducted an all-Ukrainian public opinion poll "Omnibus", to which one of the clients added questions about the "Trukhin case". By the method of computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI) based on a random sample of mobile telephone numbers (with random generation of telephone numbers and subsequent statistical weighing) were interviewed 2004 respondents living in all regions of Ukraine (except AR of Crimea). The sample is representative of the adult population (18 years and older) of Ukraine. The sample does not include territories that are temporarily not controlled by the authorities of Ukraine - the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, some districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

In Luhansk and Donetsk regionss, the poll was conducted only in the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities.

Statistical sampling error (with a probability of 0.95 and taking into account the design effect of 1.1) does not exceed: 2.4% for indicators close to 50%, 2.1% for indicators close to 25%, 1.5% - for indicators close to 10%, 1.1% - for indicators close to 5%.

 

           


Respondents during the survey were asked several questions related to the "O. Trukhin case". First, respondents were read a brief description of the situation itself (see Annex), then asked the questions themselves.

79% of respondents know about "O. Trukhin case", 31.5% of them say they are well informed about it. At the same time, among the respondents who know about the case, 64% believe that the investigation was conducted mostly not objectively (believe that mostly objectively - 13.5%, and another 22.5% were undecided with their opinion).

Annex 1. Formulation of questions from the questionnaire

 

Now we will have a few questions about the so-called "Trukhin case". As you may know, in August 2021, a serious accident took place near Kyiv, in which 6 people were injured. Oleksandr Trukhin, a People's Deputy from the "Sluha Narodu" party, was in the car that caused the accident.

It soon became known that unknown individuals were offering some news sites to remove or edit the news for money. The police referred the case to the State Bureau of Investigation (DBR).

Until recently, the DBR investigation did not find out whether Oleksandr Trukhin was behind the wheel. At the same time, on February 1, journalist Mykhailo Tkach released a video from the chest camera of a police officer who was one of the first to arrive at the scene of the accident. In the video, Oleksandr Trukhin tried to leave the scene of the accident, offered the policeman money and claimed that he would call Interior Minister Denys Monastyrskyi.

After the video was released, Oleksandr Trukhin was expelled from the "Sluha Narodu" party, and the Prosecutor General instructed to open a criminal case against Oleksandr Trukhin.
