Meanwhile, 75 percent of respondents believe that the Russian invasion of Ukraine poses a direct threat to Poland’s security, the study by pollster CBOS found.

The survey was carried out from June 27 to July 7 on a representative random sample of 1,084 respondents, Polish state news agency PAP reported.

A separate study published earlier this year found that 66 percent of Poles were providing support to Ukraine and its people amid the Russian invasion.

More than 5.22 million people have crossed into Poland from Ukraine since the start of the war in late February, the Polish Border Guard agency reported on Wednesday.
