According to a recent study, many Ukrainians think that Hungarians are the most hostile towards them in Europe, while they believe that Poland is the friendliest towards them.
According to the findings of this new study, the three countries respondents found the friendliest towards Ukraine were Poland, then Lithuania, followed closely by the United Kingdom and the United States of America, tied.
Hungary is on the other end of the spectrum, it seems, as only 45% of respondents thought that Hungary was friendly towards their country; however, 12% think the opposite, meaning that they think Hungary is openly hostile towards Ukraine.
What is most unexpected is that, according to these answers, Hungary is only 5% less hostile towards their home country than China.
While the ratio of negative opinions is obviously highest towards Russia and Belarus, Hungary is not that far on the spectrum from their attackers.
An even more unexpected result is that not only did all other European countries score higher at being friendly towards Ukrainians but, apart from Germany, no country received over 5% of the respondents’ vote indicating that they are hostile.
In contrast, while Germany was considered hostile towards their home country by 6% of the respondents, Hungary received twice as many votes, 12%.
According to the statistics of Rating Group Ukraine above, while more people think that Hungary is friendly now, also more people voted for Hungary being hostile since 2019.
While there are hundreds of thousands of people fleeing Ukraine – children, women, and men of many nationalities –, the majority of Ukrainians still believe that they can win the war Russia started.
The pie chart above shows that not only does the majority believe that Ukraine will come out victorious, in total, 61% of the respondents believe that the war will be over in a couple of months, and from that, 38% think this conflict will end in the coming few weeks, reported Szabadeurópa.
Additionally, nine out of ten respondents think that no peace treaty should be signed that allows Russian troops to be stationed in Ukraine, and 82% said that it is unthinkable that the country would be torn apart.
On the topic of joining NATO, the country seems – nearly perfectly – divided; 42% of the respondents think they should not join the alliance, while a little more, 44%, think that Ukraine must join NATO.
