European citizens support the EU’s response to the energy crisis. 82% of European citizens believe that the EU should continue to take actions to reduce energy dependence on Russian gas as much as possible.

Also, 49% of respondents think that measures taken by the EU to improve the economic situation will have a positive impact, while 18% think that they will have a negative impact and 22% that they will have no impact. Finally, the survey confirms that public opinion endorses the EU’s provision of humanitarian support to Ukraine (88%), the reception of refugees (82%), economic sanctions against Russia (71%), financial support (70%), a ban on state-owned Russian media (63%), and the supply of military equipment (59%).
