Political landscape in Donbas - poll results

The residents of Donbas largely favor ex-Regions politicians, although nationalist Svoboda also has a high rating, says a poll run in Slovyansk by Rating.

With 6 political parties with strong chances of making it to the legislature, the pluralism is unprecedented for Donbas totally dominated by the Yanukovych-led Regions party before the 2014 war. 

The summary rating of pro-European parties comes up to 30%, while pro-Russian Bojko and Rabinovich score 40% together.

The way-out for Donbas democratic parties is to steal the initiative in the region. At present, the old pro-Russian parties are holding all the aces – money and administrative resource, journalist Denis Kazansky says.
