Engagement at mass protest political action in Ukraine during November 2014 - March 2015 created the national civil movement but had manipulated in information-psychological operations for citizens from East of Ukraine as «junta», «Nazis», «punitive forces». We analyzed the data of a mass surveys conducted on December 2013 (N=2008) and October 2014 (N=800, in the East of Ukraine) by Association of Political Psychologists of Ukraine jointly with the Institute of Social and Political Psychology. The major identification point for evaluation of the state of Ukraine society is mainly domination of European geopolitical vector over Eastern one (Customs Union) (47% and 32%) in public opinion. The specifics depend on regional location and age of respondents: the closer is the place of residence to the geographical poles "East-West", the more significant is the orientation "Russia-Europe", the older are the respondents the bigger is the proportion East orientation.
