Eurobarometer: Europeans broadly support EU policy towards Ukraine and Russia


The Eurobarometer, conducted in June-July 2022, shows that EU citizens continue strongly to support the EU’s response to the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

The EU’s humanitarian support to Ukraine has the highest approval (92%) followed by welcoming Ukrainians fleeing the war into the EU (90%); 78% of Europeans support economic sanctions imposed by the EU on the Russian government, companies and individuals. 

Almost seven in ten interviewees (68%) are in favour of financing the supply and delivery of military equipment to Ukraine. And a majority of respondents are satisfied with the response of both the EU (57%) and their national government (55%).

Also, an overwhelming majority of EU citizens agree that the EU should invest in renewable energies (87%), reduce its dependency on Russian sources of energy (86%) and that gas storage in EU countries should be filled up rapidly to allow uninterrupted gas supply during winter (86%).
