SOME 70% OF HUNGARIANS SAY PEACE TALKS WOULD SERVE UKRAINE'S INTERESTS

 

Some 70% of Hungarians believe that peace talks rather than the continuation of war would serve Ukraine’s interests, think-tank Nézőpont Institute said citing a recent survey on Friday. Regardless of political affiliation, the majority in all social groups believe that the start of peace talks would serve Ukraine’s interests. A total of 73% of pro-government responders and 69% of those supporting the opposition said peace talks would serve Ukraine’s interests, while pro-war respondents accounted for 22% of government supporters and 16% of opposition voters, Nézőpont said. Some 84% of people aged above 70 and 69% of those aged 18-29 said peace talks would best serve the country’s interests. Even 69% of Budapest residents, who are generally more open to the Brussels mainstream’s position, said peace should be sought. Nézőpont conducted the survey by phoning 1,000 people between November 28 and 30.
