Attitudes towards the ban on "112", "ZIK" and "NewsOne" channels: results of a telephone survey conducted on February 5-7, 2021
Given the sensitivity of the issues related to the various "bans", the KIIS has formulated two question options. For correctness, the "split-sample" procedure was used, according to which half of the randomly selected respondents were asked one wording of the question, the other half - the second wording. An experiment with a difference in the wording of the questions showed that those who support the decision of the National Security and Defense Council (it is mostly the population of the West and the Center) and those who do not support (it is the majority of the population of the South and the East), are approximately equally
In general, 34.6% of respondents in this formulation consider the ban a necessary step, while 40.8%, on the contrary, consider it a mistake. If in the West and in the Center support of a step rather prevails, in the South, the East and Donbas there are more of those who consider such step as a mistake.
