Ukraine or Turkey? European Opinions

YushchenkoCitizens in the EU "big six" back Kiev ahead of Ankara
According to a recent opinion-poll by TNS Sofres in the "big six" EU countries (Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain and Poland), 55% support Ukraine's accession to the European Union. At 77%, Poles are the most eager to include Kiev in the EU "club", followed by 62% of Italians and 60% of Spaniards. In Germany, however, just 41% of the population backs Ukraine's accession bid. The study also reveals that those highly in favour of Turkey's EU membership had dropped considerably, ranging from 55% in Poland to 36% in Germany.
