Fake identity of a "citizen" of the DPR" is formed on the territory of Donetsk region. It was announced by head of the Fabrika mysli Donbass analytical center Dmitry Tkachenko, commenting on the results of a survey among residents of controlled and uncontrolled territories of Donetsk region.
"Our survey records that this identity has grown up to 18%. Answering the question whom you feel in the first place, 18% of respondents replied that the citizen of the "DPR". This means that Ukraine is losing the information control of the territory.
"Propaganda in closed information society closed with a monopoly on the truth by the occupation regime pays off. As soon as Ukraine resumes control, all will be deconstructed very quickly," - said Tkachenko.
"This figure shows mainly those who simply shrug their shoulders or those who are afraid. And while they transmit confidence and reputation and the Ukrainian side - silence, the figure will increase," - said General Director of Ukrainian office of the IFAK Institut international research agency Sergey Govorukha.
The survey was conducted among residents of the controlled and uncontrolled territories of Ukraine in Donetsk region on the order of the Fabrika mysli Donbass analytical center by Ukrainian office of the IFAK Institut international research agency from May 30 to June 13, 2016.
