52% of people in believe Europe is not dealing effectively with impact of violent conflicts on the EU

About half or 52 percent of Latvian residents believe that the European Union (EU) is ineffective in dealing with the impact of violent conflicts on the EU, according to a survey commissioned by the European Commission (EC) in April to assess EU residents’ knowledge and perceptions of EU crisis management.

Of the Latvian residents surveyed, 39 percent rate the handling of the impact of violent conflicts, such as the Russian war in Ukraine, as somewhat ineffective and 13 percent as very ineffective. Meanwhile, 35 percent rate it as rather effective and 6 percent as very effective. 8 percent have no opinion.

On average in Europe, respondents are evenly divided. The EU’s effectiveness in dealing with the impact of violent conflict is rated as rather effective by 39 percent and as very effective by 9 percent. Meanwhile, 32 percent rate it as rather ineffective and 14 percent as very ineffective. 6 percent of Europeans had no opinion.

As reported, on June 20 Brussels agreed on the 14th European Union (EU) sanctions package against Russia, which includes a total ban on the export and transit of manganese ore to Russia, which was put forward by the Latvian Government, Prime Minister Evika Silina (New Unity) said.

Earlier, on June 14, Germany delayed the adoption of these sanctions because of concerns about their impact on its industry and small businesses, according to EU diplomats.
