New ECFR research captures European public opinion on Russia’s war against Ukraine. It reveals that Europe’s remarkable unity in the early days of the war is under threat from an emerging split – between those who want peace as soon as possible and those who favour justice for Ukraine.
This week, senior policy fellow and head of ECFR’s European Power programme, Susi Dennison, turns the tables on one of the report’s authors, Mark Leonard, as he becomes a guest on his own podcast. They are joined by Leonard’s co-author, ECFR founding board member and chair of the Centre for Liberal Strategies, Ivan Krastev to discuss the results of the poll and examine what this means for the European response to the war. What should European leaders do to bridge the fault lines and maintain unity? And how important is Ukraine’s EU membership application?
