Neither Here Nor There: Travels in Europe - A Funny and Insightful Book by Bill Bryson (Free PDF)

czechs attitudes towards russia are strongly influenced by their past. a strong majority of czechs feel that their country has a close historical relationship with russia, but they also recall the czechoslovak crisis in 1968 and are wary of moscows regional power, especially in the baltics. paradoxically, they are also more inclined to blame russia for the crisis than are germans. in the past, the czech republic has not always been as successful in consolidating the eus common foreign and security policy. therefore, czechs could be expected to be more wary of eu enlargement than the germans.

a majority of italians also support the governments actions in the crisis. italian respondents are also more supportive than other respondents of eu integration, as well as of the eus ability to use economic and diplomatic pressure to resolve the crisis. this might be related to the fact that, in their country, there has been no opposition to eu enlargement.

in spain, a majority of respondents do not believe that the eu can protect europe against external threats. this means that most spaniards are not willing to accept the trade-off between economic growth and national unity. in other countries, respondents are more inclined to accept the trade-off. spanish respondents also believe that the eu will make the best efforts to ensure the peace in europe. however, they are less likely than respondents in most other countries to trust in the eus ability to do so.

germans are slightly more likely than respondents in other countries to believe that russia is likely to invade ukraine in 2022, but they are also more inclined to believe that europe must accept the fact that the crisis is not a european one. this could be linked to the fact that germany is the eus largest economy and has been the most willing to make economic sacrifices. however, this has not always benefited the eus external policy, especially with regard to enlargement. german respondents also think that the eu is not capable of using economic and diplomatic pressure to manage the crisis. finally, they are also more likely than respondents in other countries to blame russia for the crisis.
