Presidential Elections and Structure of Industry in Ukraine


  • Halushka, Andrij A.

    (Worcester College, Oxford)


The results of the presidential elections in Ukraine in June-July of 1994 could be considered as influenced not only by the ethnic structure of the Ukrainian society but by the structure and regional differences of the Ukrainian economy, especially the Ukrainian industry. The paper shows that the outcome of the elections (share of votes given to the newcomer president Leonid Kuchma) is highly correlated with the share of industrial workers employed on the enterprises of the fuel industry, ferrous metallurgy and machine-building industry, i.e. those industries that suffered most severely from the economic crisis in 1992-1994.
