Robert Staniszewski, curator of the Warsaw University research project, believes that “almost all indicators registered a shift in focus from very positive to moderately positive and even moderately negative” (quoted by TASS).
Aid to Ukrainian refugees and migrants is positively evaluated by only 35 percent of Poles (previously – 47). And only 10 percent favor additional support (previously 21).
The publication claims that there is a growing number of Polish residents who would like the Ukrainians who arrived in the country to return to their country after the end of the conflict.
And the provision of social support to Ukrainians on equal terms with Poles is no longer supported by 47 percent of citizens, as before, but only 18. The inhabitants of Poland began to take a negative attitude towards the accommodation and provision of food for Ukrainians at public expense – 49 percent of the survey participants spoke out against this. 57 percent of Poles do not want to accept Ukrainians into their homes.
In general, 85 percent of the respondents declare a deterioration of attitudes towards Ukrainians in Poland.
The publication believes that the main reason for such changes is the unacceptably demanding behavior of Ukrainians.
And another reason that is called in Polish society is the “lack of personal culture.”
The survey was conducted by the University of Warsaw and the University of Economics and Humanities.
