"People are pretty angry right now across Europe," said John Springford, deputy director of the London-based Center for European Reform, a policy institute. "There’s a general understanding I think that the high inflation we have been seeing is down to the war in Ukraine."

Springford said many are pointing a finger at Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"There is a fair amount of blame placed upon Putin for that — at least according to opinion polls," he said.
