The perception of politicians directly or indirectly involved in the Russo-Ukrainian war in Hungary is deteriorating compared to the May data, according to the latest survey of the turn of the century, which Hungarian Nation reported.
According to a survey conducted in June, many respondents believe that politicians directly involved in the conflict are not primarily seeking to promote peace.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky still had a 65 percent negative opinion in May, up from 68 percent.
In this connection, the End of the Century notes that the fact that the President of Ukraine and his staff criticized Hungary and the attitude of the Hungarian government on several occasions may have played a role in the respondents’ opinion.
The percentage of those who gave a negative opinion on Russian President Vladimir Putin remained unchanged, with 72 percent of those surveyed in May and June.
At the same time, the proportion of those who spoke in favor of it decreased by one percentage point, while that of those who were insecure increased by the same amount.
The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, also examined the verdict at the end of the century. Based on the results, nearly half of the respondents (49 percent) have an unfavorable attitude towards the German politician, and the proportion of those who say positive is 33 percent.
According to the analysis, the fact that the European Commission has announced that it will initiate legal proceedings against Hungary, which will allow the freezing of certain EU funds, may also play a role in the committee’s unfavorable assessment of Hungary.
