The sociology department of the National University of Ungvár (Uzshorod) in Transcarpathia, Ukraine, in cooperation with Smartpol agency, published an interesting survey about the attitudes of the Hungarian community living in the region towards the ongoing Russian aggression in Ukraine.
According to rtl.hu, their opinion differs from their compatriots living in Hungary. The interviewers talked in Hungarian with the Hungarians, so the survey should be regarded as representative.
71.4 percent of the Transcarpathian Hungarians believe in Russian responsibility for the war. Meanwhile, that rate is only 54 percent in Hungary. 67.3 percent of the local Hungarians agreed that Russia endangers peace, while that rate is only 48 percent in Hungary. More than 53 percent think Hungary should deliver weapons to Russia, and only 28.8 percent oppose that. The number of Hungarians asked was 510, and the interviews were conducted between 2 and 5 July in 18 localities.
