The camp of supporters of signing of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, who are ready to vote «Yes» on the referendum in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, is increasing. According to sociological research, the number of Dutch who are ready to support the ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, now is 44.5%. This writes 1 February 2016 edition of the Volkskrant, referring to sociological data I&O Research and University of Twente.

Thus, according to the newspaper, back in December of last year to support the Agreement were ready only 38% of the inhabitants of the Netherlands.

Today, however, the majority of respondents were skeptical.

That is, 55.5% of respondents answered «no» to the question, do they support the referendum on Association of Ukraine and the EU.

However, according to sociologists, one third of respondents are still undecided how they will vote in a referendum on 6 April.

The researchers attributed the division between the Dutch strong euroskeptic sentiment in society and the unwillingness of the inhabitants of the Kingdom to further EU enlargement to the East.
