Every second Hungarian is of the opinion that European Union sanctions hurt Europe more than Russia, while only 12% believe the opposite, a survey by Nézőpont Institute released on Friday shows. The results of phone interviews of 1,000 people from Oct. 3 to 5 show that 32% believe the sanctions equally hurt Europe and Russia. Among left-wing supporters, 24% said the sanctions hurt Europe more, while 28% said they hurt Russia more, while 43% said both sides suffered equally. At the same time, among supporters of the ruling parties, seven out of ten people said the sanctions hurt Europe more than Russia; only 2% said they hurt Russia more than Europe and 23% said they harmed both sides equally.
