MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The majority of Europeans agree that Europe cannot always rely on the United States, and that it needs to look after its own defense capabilities, a poll conducted by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) showed on Wednesday.

According to the survey, 74% of respondents believe that Europe needs its own defense capabilities, compared to 66% in 2020.

Only 8% of the survey participants believe the US will always protect Europe, as opposed to 11% of respondents in 2020 who said Europe did not need to worry about its own defense capabilities.

A further 9% hesitated to answer, with the remaining 9% answering “don’t know.”
