Most of the responders in Ukraine are quite easy about the danger of Trump 

42% of the Ukrainians expect no changes in the U.S.-Ukraine relations during the Donald Trump administration in the future, the opinion poll conducted by the Rating group shows. 

Besides, around 25% of the responders claim the bilateral relations between countries may significantly deteriorate because of the probable pro-Russian sentiments in the coming U.S. Republican administration. The pessimistic views are mostly registered in the central and the southern regions of Ukraine, the agency's press release concerning the poll says. 

Only 7% of responders think that the U.S-Ukraine relations are going to get much better under president Trump, the figures show.

Because of sporadic Kremlin-favourable rhetoric and sceptical views towards the NATO and the EU security, the U.S. president-elect Donald Trump is viewed by many as a pro-Russan politician ready to initiate the rapprochement with Moscow amid its aggression in the Eastern Europe.
