Belgium (Brussels Morning Newspaper) Despite the growing energy crisis, a big majority of Europeans “continue to stand firmly by Ukraine’s side”, according to a new survey.
It states that a broad majority supports arms deliveries and the willingness to also accept Ukraine into the EU remains high.
There is also strong support for the need for the EU to become more independent in terms of energy supply – even if this means personal cuts.
Nevertheless, the report’s authors warn that “these attitudes cannot be taken for granted, as there are initial signs that approval is crumbling.”
This is one of the findings of the new eupinions survey, the Bertelsmann Stiftung’s European public opinion tool, for which around 12,000 citizens throughout the EU are surveyed every three months.
