– The vast majority of us think about war with images and slogans from internet memes, which usually inform us about war incidents, not the real, full course of a conflict. These memes, talking mainly about Russia’s ineptitude and the heroism and cunning of Ukrainians, combined with clickbait titles of articles on portals give a large part of Poles a sense of “being up to date” on the conflict beyond our eastern border. Of course, as Poles, we really want Ukraine to win in this war, which is why we read and repeat the narrative about clumsy Russia and effective Ukraine with satisfaction – explains Dr. Karolina Brylska from LBM UW in the commentary to the study.
Men more often than women “strongly disagreed” with the statement that the Russian Federation was well prepared for the war (47.6% to 27.9%). On the other hand, women more often chose the answers in this question “I rather agree” (5.5% to 10.9%) and “I strongly agree” (7.1% to 11%).
A subject that is passing
Almost every third Pole (31 percent of respondents) “definitely” or “rather” agrees with the statement that the Polish media devotes too much attention to the war in Ukraine, while 15 percent. there is no opinion on this, and the majority (almost 54%) do not agree with this opinion.
The potential voters of Kukiz’15 (56.9%) and the Confederation (56.8%) are the most critical of the large number of media coverage about the war.
– This is, of course, evidence of the audience’s fatigue with the subject, resulting from many months of exposure to the subject of war on the headlines of portals, newspapers, and TV stations. On the other hand, some hope is given by the fact that more than half of the respondents are of the opposite opinion, and therefore probably maintain interest in war reports, recognizing their real importance and significance – comments Dr. Karolina Brylska.
Refugees well received
As much as 67 percent. of the respondents answered that they strongly agree, and another 25% that they agree with this statement. At 7 percent answers “difficult to say”, it should be noted that as much as 99 percent. respondents believed that Ukrainians were well received in their community.
“The reception of refugees was clearly dependent on the gender of the respondents: women more often than men assessed it as definitely good (70.1% of women compared to 63.6% of men). This is an important observation, because in the context of previous studies showing greater commitment to help women than men, it can be concluded that their orientation in this matter is better “- reads the report of Laboratorium Badioznawcze.
