War in Ukraine seen as “unjustifiable Russian aggression” by three quarters of Czechs

Three quarters of Czechs see the war in Ukraine as a case of “unjustifiable Russian aggression”, according to a survey conducted by the Median agency for Czech Radio on the occasion of the one year anniversary of the outbreak of the conflict.

The number of people who condemned the invasion, in line with the official government stance, is still high, but lower than the 87 percent who responded with the same answer a year ago. Meanwhile, an increase was noticeable among those who say that the Russian invasion was not a case of unjustifiable aggression, rising from 9 to 19 percent.

Young people and voters of President-elect Petr Pavel were more likely to condemn the war. Meanwhile, a favourable stance towards Russia was noticeable among the older group of respondents. The latter stance was also more common among people with an elementary education, the unemployed, or ANO and Freedom and Direct Democracy voters.
