This year, the company traditionally asked Poles about their attitude towards 20 nations. According to the survey, Americans, Italians, British, Czechs, Slovaks and Ukrainians open the ranking of the nations most loved by Poles. Sympathy for the inhabitants of the United States was declared by 68% of those surveyed. In second place are the Italians (61%), the third, the British (60%). A little more than half of the Poles show sympathy for the Ukrainians. The positive attitude towards them and the British reached an all-time high.
As for Russians, 82% of Poles dislike them, compared to 38% last year. The proportion of positive Poles in relation to Russian citizens decreased from 29% to 6%. “Never in the last three decades that we have been asking this question have attitudes toward any nation changed so dramatically in one year,” the study says.
In addition, the survey draws attention to the fact that, in relation to the Poles, the Hungarians register “the lowest level of sympathy and, at the same time, the highest level of hostility in the last 30 years.” 36% of Poles declared their sympathy for the Hungarians, 27% – hostility.
