According to a poll by the ECFR think tank, 35% of Europeans want Russia’s war against Ukraine to end as quickly as possible – even at the price of Ukrainian concessions.
Vienna. In the first 100 days since Russia invaded Ukraine, Europeans formed a united front against Moscow and supported sweeping sanctions against the aggressor. But that front is gradually starting to crumble – at least that’s the conclusion of a study by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), which will be published on Wednesday.
ECFR Director Mark Leonard and Ivan Krastev of the Institute of Human Sciences Vienna (IWM) had a total of 8,172 people in nine EU countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Romania, Portugal, Finland and Sweden) to your study. as well as in Great Britain. The data shows that Europeans have little doubt that Russia is to blame for the war and that Moscow has the power to stop the bloodshed – with just over one in three respondents in Italy already believing that Ukraine and the West (and not Moscow) are the main obstacles to peace.
