countries surveyed where the percentage of citizens who think their country is on the right track,
exceeds those who believe the country is heading in the wrong direction.

Trust for the media is also much higher in Finland than other countries surveyed.

Finns’ disapproval of Vladimir Putin is the highest of any country surveyed. They are more likely to blame Putin for the war in Ukraine, agree the war is not legitimate, support sanctions against Russia, support maintaining sanctions even if sanctions cause economic hardships and agree that Russian disinformation must be stopped, than citizens in the other countries surveyed.
