Meanwhile, 81 percent of respondents believe that Russia's ongoing invasion of Ukraine poses a direct threat to Poland’s security, down from 83 percent in March, the study by pollster CBOS found.

The survey was carried out between April 8 and 18 on a sample of 1,079 respondents, Polish state news agency PAP reported.

The study also revealed that 59 percent of Poles are concerned about the possibility of Russia launching a military attack on NATO countries in the next three to eight years.

In contrast, 32 percent of respondents believe that such a scenario is improbable, the PAP news agency reported.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, starting the largest armed conflict in Europe since World War II.

Wednesday is day 812 of Russias war on Ukraine.
