MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Europe has been beset by a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants fleeing their crisis-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa to escape violence and poverty. The majority of them cross the Mediterranean Sea and arrive in the European Union using southern EU nations as transit points.
"I think the Eurozone is the catastrophe. Just look at what they've done to Greece and those Mediterranean countries. The migrant crisis is now not just dividing countries, but dividing within countries… The project does not work," Farage said at EU referendum TV debate with UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
He also criticized the fact that the money within the Eurozone was running out, but at the same time, there were spendings on such things, as possible European army and increased European budget.
Farage added that he wanted Britons to be good Europeans and would maintain economic and political ties with other European nations, but would govern themselves on their own.
UK nationals are set to vote on June 23 in a referendum on the country's EU membership, after Cameron and the leaders of other 27 EU member states agreed in February to grant the United Kingdom a special status within the bloc.
