    On Wednesday the Finnish Parliament passed legislation, imposing additional requirements for reunification of migrants' families, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Yle news portal reported that the Parliament adopted changes to Finland's Aliens Act that toughened minimum income requirements for family reunification.

    The bill was supported by 102 parliamentarians, while 27 lawmakers opposed it, the news portal added.

    According to the news outlet, during the Wednesday session the Parliament has also allocated some 230 million euros on the issues related to immigration.

    The European Union is currently struggling to manage a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of people leaving conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa for stable and wealthy European states.
