Map: Where Europeans Lay Claim to their Neighboring Countries
At the end of 2020, the Pew Research Center published the results of a poll that is becoming relevant in light of recent events, Russia’s attack on Ukraine. One of the questions in that survey was about their attitudes towards territorial claims in neighboring countries. When questioned, “if there are parts of neighboring countries that really belong to us,” 67% of Hungarians polled by Pew Research Center agreed. Greece (60%), Turkey (58%), Bulgaria (58%), and Russia (53%) also had a high agreement.
According to another survey conducted by Gallup, some of these countries have a high percentage of residents willing to fight for their country.
