MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Over half of Austrians believe that sanctions against Russia harm the EU citizens, a poll conducted by the Institute for New Social Answers for a Austrian newspaper showed on Friday.
Fifty-four percent of respondents think that sanctions against Russia have a negative impact on the European Union, while 21% see neither positive nor negative effect of the sanctions, and only 12% care confident that the sanctions have positive consequences for Western Europe.
The survey was conducted among 1,000 Austrian citizens from September 4-7.
