    The usage of western advertising concepts and their interpretations from western perspective can lead to misunderstanding of Ukrainian perspective towards advertising. This working paper aims to report the results of a survey about changing attitudes towards advertising in Ukraine in the post liberalization period. It examines the questionnaire-based response of a sample population of consumers from the city of Kiev in their general attitudes towards advertising. Findings will contribute to the understanding of theoretical explanations for advertising in merging markets, and of western firms using advertising marketing tool to penetrate the Ukrainian market.
