At the end of 2018, a pilot survey of DSTU students was conducted to identify their perception of propaganda in General. In total 169 respondents of 1 - 4 courses, age from 17 to 37 years were interviewed. Of these, 96 people were technical specialties, 73 were humanitarian. The paper presents the results obtained by the cognitive block of the questionnaire. It asked students to describe the fairness of the policy pursued by the state and the credibility of both government and opposition political propaganda in General. At the same time, domestic and foreign policy were considered separately. Diagrams of the distribution of these six values by respondents are given. It is received that in General on the investigated group the assessment of justice of policy of the state can be called rather negative. For domestic policy, 70% of respondents indicated a level of justice below the average, 36% of them consider it completely unfair. For foreign policy, these figures are 10% better. Approximately the same regularities are observed for assessing the reliability of political propaganda, both Pro-government and opposition. At the same time, about 10% consider opposition propaganda to be more reliable.
