Opinions on the European Union

It is important to emphasise that in times of crisis (including the threat of war), citizens tend to turn to larger entities and communities for security, while European citizens are more critical of the day-to-day activities of the EU bureaucracy than of the European Union as the embodiment of the European ideal.

European public opinion: Sanctions hurt the EU more than Russia

The European Union’s sanctions policy is reasonably expected to cause more damage to Russia than to Europe. As punitive measures have not been able to speed up the end of the war (in fact, the armed conflict is deepening) and the EU’s prospects are deteriorating, there is growing criticism of the Community’s previous efforts. EU […]
