Belarusians most pessimistic among Eastern Partnership countries

Almost 60% of Belarusians do not believe in positive changes and look at the future of the country with pessimism, the latest poll conducted by the European Union in March 2019 claims.

This is the worst result among the Eastern Partnership countries. Armenia, where 70% of the population is optimistic, has the best poll results.

The second most “pessimistic” country after Belarus is Ukraine.
