In early August, the Ekonomichna Pravda publication and Mastercard conducted a survey among Ukrainians on the desired future of Ukraine. The respondents were asked seven questions to find out what changes they want to see in various sectors and how they see the country in the future. More than 22 thousand Ukrainian citizens joined the poll.

So, what does the future Ukraine look like for Ukrainians?


How do Ukrainians see the country in the future?


First of all, Ukrainian citizens see the country as economically developed and strong, able to provide a decent standard of living for all citizens - 74% of respondents said so.


The second most popular statement (55%) was that the Ukraine of the future is a strong military state that can defend its territorial integrity at any time.


39% of respondents see Ukraine as a technological hub in the heart of Europe, generating urgent innovative solutions. And another third (31%) believe that Ukraine has a high tourism potential and is emerging as a new destination for millions of tourists from around the world who will enjoy discovering Ukrainian culture and nature.


How do Ukrainians feel about the country's digitalization and the introduction of AI in public services?


According to UkraineAlert, more than 19 million people use the Diia mobile application today, so it is not surprising that 84% of Ukrainians surveyed see Ukraine as a digital state in the future, where any administrative issues can be resolved online. At the same time, 16% of respondents still prefer offline interaction and consider digital services to be only an additional option.


In addition, according to the survey, 6 out of 10 Ukrainians are ready to introduce artificial intelligence into certain parts of the processes that are not currently automated and are performed by civil servants.


- 37% are confident that this way they will be able to receive all the necessary services and answers to questions 24/7;

- 31% believe that in certain situations, a specialist is indispensable, as sometimes it is necessary to take into account individual factors of the applicant when making decisions, which AI will not do;

- 23% are convinced that AI will allow making unbiased decisions based on the analysis of applicant data;

- 9% have no principled position on this issue and are ready to adapt to any innovations.


At the same time, Ukrainians were asked whether they are ready to switch to a cashless lifestyle, which most progressive countries are striving for. Yes:


- 34% of Ukrainians are not ready to give up cash and believe that there should be an alternative just in case.

- 28% of respondents are already ready to take such a step, as they mostly use non-cash payments;

- 23% of respondents support this decision, but will join this trend only when the country's payment infrastructure is ready for it;

- 15% of respondents do not believe that full cashless is possible in the near future.

What do Ukrainians think education in Ukraine should look like?


Given that Ukraine is facing a post-war recovery in the near future and that it is quite possible that the state will need new specialists in various fields in a short time, Ukrainians were asked how they feel about changes in the approach to education. In particular, whether they are ready for non-formal education in the form of courses, lectures, and seminars to become official.


Thus, 69% of Ukrainians are ready to rethink the format of education in Ukraine, but believe that some professions will still require classical higher education.


- 50% said they generally agree with such changes, but it depends on the professions that will be acquired in this way;

- 31% disagree with such reforms and believe that it is impossible to become a highly qualified specialist without a complete higher education;

- 19% consider this decision appropriate, as this approach saves time and theoretical knowledge is immediately reinforced by practice.


How many Ukrainians support the inclusive reconstruction of Ukraine?


Overall, 8 out of 10 respondents support an inclusive approach to rebuilding Ukraine and believe that a comfortable life should be available to everyone in every corner of the country. Thus: 


- 86% of Ukrainians fully support this approach and believe that the Ukraine of the future is a country of equal opportunities and an inclusive society open to everyone;

- 14 respondents believe that this issue is not relevant now, and the country has higher priorities.


Do Ukrainians support the environmental course of Ukraine's development?


Ukrainians were asked whether they want Ukraine to follow the path of sustainable development and careful use of natural resources. Yes:


- 65% of respondents stated that they fully support this initiative and believe that everyone can make an important contribution (sorting garbage, protecting the environment, buying products made from recycled materials, etc;)

- 27% of respondents support this course, but believe that changes should take place primarily at the state level;

- 7% of Ukrainians said they had no principled position on this issue, but were ready to join in if the state moved in this direction.


In summary, despite the full-scale war, Ukrainians believe in a bright future for Ukraine as an economically strong and technologically advanced country. The society is open to innovation and change, and therefore ready to look for ways to make Ukraine better.


We will survive! We will win!


We remind you! The full-scale russian invasion has united Ukrainians and led to a general increase in the level of patriotism. Find out how the attitude of Ukrainian citizens towards the attributes of the country's independence and Ukrainian culture has changed in our previous article.
