Nezopont: Vast majority against Ukrainian GMO imports

Fully 87 percent of respondents to a Nezopont survey say Hungary should not allow genetically modified produce to be imported from Ukraine, the Nezopont Institute said on Friday.

According to the phone survey of 1,000 adults conducted between December 4 and 6, only 5 percent said such Ukrainian imports should be permitted.

Referring to earlier surveys, Nezopont said 62 percent of the Hungarian population opposed Kyiv’s endeavours to join the European Union, adding that their reservations may be rooted in their rejection of agricultural imports from Ukraine.

Nezopont added that respondents who were against Ukrainian imports were “in the majority irrespective of political affiliation”.
