Who will stand up for a Ukrainian woman against an aggressive pensioner? The experiment showed that people are not indifferent


“What are you doing here, talking about Ukraine,” an elderly man yells at a young woman who tries to ignore him at a bus stop in Ostrava. Nevertheless, the man continues to shout violently and tries to escalate the conflict. Those who stand up for the young woman will prevent him from doing so.

The staged social experiment showed that people were able to stand up for the Ukrainian refugee and, sometimes with very indiscriminate expressions, directed the aggressor to the appropriate limits, or escorted the woman out of his reach.

In seven cases, the young women stood up for the Czechs, in one case a fellow countrywoman.

More than half of Ukrainians in the Czech Republic have already faced aggression, the survey found

According to a recent survey by the PAQ Research agency, 60 percent of Ukrainians who now reside in the Czech Republic have encountered some form of aggression.

Another investigation showed that Czech society is divided in its attitudes towards Ukrainians and, for example, their possible stay even after the end of the conflict.

The czeXperiment project presents itself as a probe into the soul of the Czech nation and a view of the Czech mentality.

The series of videos published so far tried to find out whether people are willing to comply with apparently absurd orders, or their relationship to the functioning and direction of the Czech Republic.
