Less than one third of Croatians support the Druzba Adria project aimed at transporting the Russian oil via Omisalj on the northern Croatian Adriatic island of Krk, the GfK pollster reported on Wednesday.

The findings of a survey, which the GfK conducted among 1,000 respondents in July, show that nine (9) percent of those polled said they fully supported the project, with 21 percent also expressing support to the project.

There were 30 percent of indecisive respondents, who neither supported nor opposed the plan.

As many as 33 percent of those polled said that they did not support Druzba Adria at Omisalj.

The support was lowest in the Adriatic regions of Primorje (26 percent) and Dalmatia (22 percent).

Furthermore, 40 percent of respondents in Dalmatia were against the project.

As many as 73 percent of those polled said they knew about that project, with 27 percent saying that they did not know about it.

As many as 68 percent of those polled were in favour of calling a referendum on the project.

On the other hand, 20 percent of the respondents were against a referendum for deciding on the matter. The survey shows that 12 percent did not know whether the referendum should be organised or not on this topic.
