The majority of EU citizens, namely 60%, are in favor of further arms supplies to Ukraine, European Pravda reports, citing a survey conducted by the Bertelsmann Foundation in June, with reference to RND.

Every three months since the beginning of the war, the Foundation asks 12,000 people in different EU countries what they think about the EU policy towards Ukraine. The first survey was conducted in March.

The March poll showed that the level of support for arms supplies was 62%, while in June it fell slightly to 60%.

In Germany, 61% of respondents believe that Ukraine should be supplied with weapons. The highest figure among the EU countries is in Poland – 84%.
