    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Almost a third of Ukrainians are ready to leave the country and generally, there is a significant increase in migration from Ukraine, according to the results of a Research and Branding Group survey.

    The results of the research were presented to Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency by the group's founder, sociologist Evgeniy Kopatko.

    "Migration moods have hit an unprecedented high: 28 percent [of Ukrainians] are ready to leave the country," he said.

    The survey was conducted during the period from January 26 to February 6 2015. A total of 1,500 people were interviewed in 22 Ukrainian regions, with the exception of the conflict-torn Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The statistical error is less than 3 percent.

    Research & Branding Group is a non-government research company that specializes in all types of sociological analysis.

    The internal conflict in Ukraine has had a direct impact on Ukraine's economic and social spheres. According to Russia's Federal Migration Service, there are over 2.6 million Ukrainians currently in Russia; more than a million of them are men of military age.
