The US represents a much greater threat to European security than Russia, writes Zeit, citing a survey of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, conducted among Germans.
The results of this study will be presented in mid-February at the annual Munich Security Conference.
Thus, according to the survey, every second respondent (50 percent) called the United States the main threat to European countries, with only 33 percent of Germans seeing the greatest threat from Russia.
In addition, half of the respondents (50 percent) called the expansion of NATO a reason for the deterioration of European security, and 41 percent of Germans saw a threat in the expansion of the European Union.
At the same time, more than half of the respondents (54 percent) believe that Europe needs to invest more in security.
It is also reported that the same surveys were conducted in several other European countries, in particular, in Serbia, in Ukraine and in Poland. These studies showed that the overwhelming majority of Serbs (85%), Ukrainians (74%) and Poles (67%) believe that their countries do not receive due recognition in the international arena.
Earlier, the Forsa Sociological Institute conducted a study on the attitude of Germans towards the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. According to the survey, only 13 percent of respondents were against the project, and 73 percent considered construction the right decision.
