HUNGARIANS SEE RUSSIA SANCTIONS TRIGGERING EUROPEAN ECONOMIC DECLINE - SZÁZADVÉG

 

Fully 83% of Hungarians agree with the view that EU sanctions against Russia would result in Europe’s precipitous economic decline next year, according to a survey by the Századvég Foundation. The think-tank’s interviews of 1,000 people released on Friday suggested that only 13% of Hungarians do not expect sanctions to mar Europe’s economy. Some 68% of people expressed a poor opinion of the European Union’s punitive measures against Russia, while 25% found them effective, Századvég said. Fully 79% agreed with the statement that Brussels’ existing sanctions on energy and planned further sanctions could play a major role in the steep rise in fuel and energy prices and inflation, Századvég added.
