UKRAINE - TWO YEARS OF WAR/The war polarized us, there is empathy and negative attitudes(UBB rector)

Politics

The rector of Babeş-Bolyai University (UBB) from Cluj-Napoca, Prof. Dr. Daniel David, told AGERPRES that the war started by Russia in Ukraine, two years ago, polarized the Romanians. CE Report quoting Agerpres

"There is polarization, so empathy/compassion, but also negative attitudes. Just like our psychocultural profile: initially fear and revolt on a large scale, transposed into a broader positive attitude towards Ukraine, then polarization, all in a framework of attitudinal inconsistency at the population level. Ordinary people do not think historically; perhaps they use history, as they understand it, to justify post factum some everyday decisions. Simply put, the relationship with Ukraine is now perceived polarized, exaggerating both the negative and the positive, and with (Republic of) Moldova often in an exaggeration of the positive, where I am worried about our inconsistency and inattention to realism," Daniel David said.
