The impact of the war in Ukraine on the perception of freedom of speech in the Czech Republic and Slovakia


More inhabitants of the Czech Republic than the Slovak Republic accept the statement that their country is part of the information war waged by the Russian Federation. In the Czech Republic it is 52% of the population, while in Slovakia it is 40%. These are the results of a sociological survey conducted by Ipsos in both countries for the Central European Digital Media Observatory (CEDMO). Almost a third of the population of the Slovak Republic (29%) expressed the opinion that information warfare is merely a pretext for Western governments (including their own) to restrict freedom of speech. In the Czech Republic, it is 15% of the population.
