The results of June IISEPS survey demonstrate which countries respondents consider friendly, and which hostile. These results confirm a high level of stability of Belarusians’ “picture of the world”, however the observed changes are quite instructive.
Dynamics of public opinion in Belarus:
June IISEPS survey demonstrated that, as previously, Belarusians consider the US as the most hostile country to Belarus – 52.4% of respondents share this opinion (only 4.2% of respondents believe that the US is a friendly country). For comparison, the next country in the list of hostility is Germany with 23.7% of votes.
It’s worth a reminder that in February the EU cancelled sanctions against Belarus, and the normalization of relations between Belarus and the EU entered a new phase. It might be supposed that it was this factor that determined the improvement in attitude towards the EU, which was also reflected in the growth of pro-European moods.
