89% of Belarusians feel positive or neutral about the European Union, the recent report by EU Neighbours east project says.
The majority of the population continues to maintain a largely neutral stance towards EU (53%) and ‘neutrality’ is even more widespread than in 2018 (up 10%). Over one in three citizens have a positive view (36%); 10% have negative stance.
Compared to 2018, more citizens positively acknowledge the relations between their country and the EU and currently 62% the population describe them as ‘fairly good’ (56%, up 10%) or ‘very good’ (6%, up 2%).
Around one in two Belarusians tend to trust the European Union (51%), the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) (48%) and the United Nations (UN) (47%). At that, NATO gathers a much lower level of trust (19%) – reflecting the more cautious attitude of citizens over NATO’s operations in the region.
