Poles support Russian energy embargo even at cost

Most Poles in a recent survey have opted for an EU-wide embargo on Russian gas, oil and coal even at the cost of rising prices of the commodities.

In an SW Research poll for the “Rzeczpospolita” daily, published on Sunday, 58.9 percent of respondents supported such an embargo even if they had to pay higher prices as a result of the move, while 13.4 percent were against.

The import ban was most often supported by people living in smaller towns, up to 20,000 inhabitants (64 percent) and cities of between 200,000 and 499,000 inhabitants (66 percent).

People living in medium-sized cities, between 100,000 and 199,000 inhabitants, were the least supportive of the idea (53 percent).

A total of 800 people over 18 years old took part in the online poll.
