Incumbent Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky would receive the greatest support if a presidential election were held in Ukraine in early June, according to a survey conducted by Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) between June 1-7.
In particular, 30.6% of Ukrainians who have decided on their choice are ready to back Zelensky. In second place is the former Ukrainian president, European Solidarity party leader Petro Poroshenko, for whom 17.4% of respondents are ready to vote.
Some 12.7% of those polled would cast their ballots for Batkivshchyna party leader Yulia Tymoshenko, 10.6% would support a co-chairman of the Opposition Platform – For Life party, Yuriy Boiko, and 8.1% would vote for Strength and Honor party leader Ihor Smeshko.
