Public opinion on Katyń massacre during WWII in Poland 2020

According to a survey conducted in March 2020, 78 percent of respondents believe that Russia did not sufficiently explain the circumstances of the Soviet NKVD massacre on Polish officers and intellectuals in Katyn Forest in 1940. It is estimated that over 21.7 thousand Polish citizens were executed in Katyn.

The term "Katyn massacre" refers to the mass shootings of Polish citizens, mostly Polish Army officers, as well as officers of the State Police and Border Protection Corps, carried out by the NKVD (the interior ministry of the Soviet Union) in the spring of 1940 in the east: in Katyn and other places such as Kalinin (today's Tver), Kharkiv, Minsk, and Kyiv. 2020 marks the 80th anniversary of these events.

Do you agree that Russia has already done enough to explain the circumstance of the Katyn massacre in 1940?
