    The group that did the poll started in 1988 when Ukraine was still COMMUNIST!!!!! They're probably secretly muslim like all the rest of the commie scum.

    If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

      of ukraine's parliament. i think some people don't understand the diversity of ukrainian politics, although this poll is a good indication. a lot of candidates, no clear majority favorite.

          i wouldn't be surprised to see disproportionately low levels of ukrainian muslim levels of support for communists. but yeah, i'm sure some exist. communism used to be a big thing in large parts of the muslim world, a generation or two ago. (i once thumbed through a book by netanyahu written in the late 80s selling israel as the lynchpin in the global struggle against communism. it was like mad libs)
