A new survey of Czech Public Opinion Research Center revealed some 50 percent of Czech citizens stand against the reception of refugees from the war-torn states in their country.

PRAGUE (Sputnik) — Some 50 percent of Czech citizens stand against the reception of refugees from the war-torn states in their country, a new survey of Czech Public Opinion Research Center (CVVM) revealed on Wednesday.

The results of the CVVM’s survey showed that half of Czechs oppose taking in migrants from crisis-torn countries such as Syria, while some 40 percent of citizens could accept their temporary allocation in the republic and less than 5 percent are ready for refugees to stay in the country on a permanent basis.

The research centre said that the similar surveys from Poland and Slovakia showed that the majority of their residents also opposed accepting refugees or supported hosting them only for a short period.

Eastern European countries, along with other EU states, are facing the largest wave of refugee inflow since World War II.

On September 24, the EU interior ministers approved a quota system proposed by the European Commission to redistribute asylum seekers. It includes a plan to relocate an additional 120,000 refugees predominantly from the Middle East and North Africa throughout the European Union.

The quotas proposed by the European Commission have been strongly opposed by several Eastern European countries, including the Czech Republic.
