Poland-Russia. Social Diagnosis 2020
Does the deep crisis of trust in Russia and Russians revealed in the 2014 poll after the war against Ukraine still persist? Or are we seeing a move back towards calmer feelings of the period before Crimea’s annexation? Do Poles have different views on the Russian state as opposed to the Russian people as before 2014? Does the age of respondents influence their opinions on Polish-Russian affairs?Where might we find an anchor-point for social dialogue with Russians?
The survey findings offer answers to these and other questions, and reveal indicative changes in Poles’ attitudes in recent years. This poll covers current questions and longer-running issues: Polish-Russian relations are best analysed from a longer-term perspective combining permanent features of collective memory with sensitivity shaped by changing circumstances.
