Ukrainians' Ratings of Their Lives, Country Hit New Low...

The US inspired coup in Ukraine is not exactly causing good cheer in the country.
According to a new Gallup Poll. on a ladder scale with steps numbered from 0 to 10, with 10 being the best possible life, Ukrainians rate their current lives at a 4.3 on average. This is worse than the 4.8 average rating they gave their lives in 2013, and the lowest Gallup has ever measured in the country over the past nine years.
Gallup's interviews in Ukraine this year took place in September and October following a cease-fire between the Ukrainian government and pro-Russian separatists in the country's East. Gallup's polls in 2014 excluded the Crimea region. And some areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions where security was an issue. The excluded areas account for approximately 10% to 13% of Ukraine's adult population. Comparisons between the 2013 and 2014 data are based on the same survey coverage areas.
