Kyiv: In six partner countries of the European Union (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine), a survey of citizens about the image of the EU was conducted.
A positive image of the European Union in the world is considered by 44% of respondents. Another 61% of respondents believe that the reputation of the EU in the world is good. Nevertheless, 13% of citizens said they have a negative attitude.
The public opinion survey was conducted by the Eastern Neighborhood Initiative of the EU in March-May 2017 in six Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. Annual studies have been conducted for the second year, and the first phase of the study was conducted in 2016.
Such surveys are annual, and their goal is to better understand and understand the opinion and level of awareness of how citizens of the Eastern Partner countries belong to the European Union. The surveys cover six broad topics, including knowledge of the financial support provided by the EU and an assessment of its effectiveness, as well as an assessment of the EU's relations with the country. The survey is conducted within the framework of the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) project.
According to this poll, in Georgia there is a trend of growing support for the EU.
