Across ten European countries polled by ECFR, 57% said they are in favour of Ukraine joining the EU, while 19% opposed such a move.
Poland is most in favour of Ukraine becoming an EU member. Thus, 70% of the country’s respondents supported Ukraine’s EU accession.
Poles are followed by 69% in Portugal and Finland, and 66% in Sweden. A majority in Spain (58%) is also in favour.
Germany and Italy displayed the most opposition to Ukraine’s EU membership bid
Almost one-third (32%) of those polled in Germany, and just over a quarter of French (26%) and Italian (28%) respondents oppose Ukraine’s EU accession.
However, the prevailing view in these three countries was still in support of Kyiv joining the bloc (48%, 47% and 46%, respectively).
European Union leaders are due to announce, later this week, whether they will grant Ukraine EU candidate status.
