Since March 2022, the Bertelsmann foundation has been interviewing 12.000 people from different EU countries every 3 months. The main issue is the attitude of the respondents about the EU/Ukraine policy and the continuation of arms supplies for our country's Armed Forces. In March, the average percentage showed 62% support, in June, the indicator fell by 2 percentage points.
Isabelle Hoffman, an expert at the foundation, said that in March, "everyone was in shock, and the desire to support Ukraine was very high." Now the shock has partially passed, "but the will to support is still very high, although the negative consequences are more visible in everyday life."
The latest poll data is as follows:
- Poland — 84%;
- Holland — 68%;
- Spain — 65%;
- France — 63%;
- Belgium — 62%;
- Germany — 61%;
- Italy — 42%.
Italy has the lowest approval rate. However, Giorgia Meloni directly stated the need to continue deliveries of weapons to Ukraine.
