MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A total of 31 percent of Greeks are positive about the country’s membership in the European Union, which is the lowest support for the bloc among the member states, the Eurobarometer poll showed.

The average support for the European Union in the bloc amounts to 53 percent. Most people believe that the EU membership is profitable for their countries and there are more issues uniting the EU countries than problems that can lead to the bloc’s dissolution.

The highest support for the bloc was registered in Luxembourg, Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany with more than 70 percent of people positively assessing EU membership.
