According to Roman Shutov program director of “Media Detector” the national media rarely mention IDPs issue on TV.
“If someone takes all news that we have come out in the evening on the national (the so-called mainstream media), and find where there is even mention of settlers, you would have 1%. That is only every hundredth news story somehow be referred to migrants”, – Shutov said.
Shutov said that the society did not think of Donbas reintegration. Recent sociological research by “Media Detector” showed that 32% of Ukrainians believed that in 2014 was an armed coup in Kiev. In 2015, this opinion was held by 27% of citizens.
Only 22% of residents from eastern regions reportedly trust to Ukrainian TV on the issue of the conflict in Donbas.
