Europeans would rather see Ukraine and Russia than Turkey in the European Union, according to a French poll.
The poll also says, however, that just more than one-half of Ukrainians contacted want in the EU.
Ironically, the survey was conducted for a lobbying group promoting Ukraine's entry into the union.
Around 1,000 people in each of the EUÂ´s six largest countries -- Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Spain and Britain -- were queried about their choices for EU additions.
The question was asked with regard to Turkey, which opened EU talks in October, and Ukraine, Russia and Morocco, none of which expects membership talks in the near future, the EU Observer said.
But, non-candidate states Ukraine and Russia appeared to enjoy more popularity among Europeans than Turkey.
Kiev and Moscow got a "yes" from 51 and 45 percent of respondents, respectively, as opposed to 40 percent backing Turkish membership.
Taken outright from here.
Take with a large grain of salt because of "Ironically, the survey was conducted for a lobbying group promoting Ukraine's entry into the union."
