A poll by the Publicus Institute commissioned by the Hungarian left-leaning opposition newspaper Népszava has found that more than 52% of Hungarians disapprove of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's recent meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
A total of 91% of respondents have been aware that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Beijing.
People who dislike it outnumber those who see nothing wrong with the fact that while European leaders are keeping away from the Russian president who ordered the invasion of Ukraine, the Hungarian PM is holding talks with him.
Just 35% believe the meeting was OK. Political preferences primarily drive attitudes towards this issue. Some 13% declined to answer the question.
