On streets of Nikolaev recently even more often it is possible to see the notes of 10 hryvnias broken off on small slices on which Ivan Mazepa is represented. So those who is dissatisfied with this historical character, express the attitude towards the hetman. And in next to Nikolayev Odesse the public organization "Volunteer Society of Protection of United Russia" (PATROL) suggested the population to mark notes with the image of the hetman Ivan Mazepa the words "traitor" or "Judas".
Such information I transferred a press - service of this organization.
In PATROL consider that Ivan Mazepa is the traitor while the today's "orange" leadership of Ukraine tries to present it the hero.
The majority of respondents analytical group "SMS-monitoring" of inhabitants of Nikolaev and Odessa don't agree with Ivan Mazepa's glorification by the present leadership of Ukraine, only 24 percent of respondents during survey conducted from May 5 to May 10, 2009, positively estimate Mazepa's activity. In poll took part 200 nikolayevets and inhabitants of Odessa.
