A major migration crisis has been ongoing in European countries in the course of the last few years, with many of them struggling to cope with the growing influx of migrants.
International non-governmental organization Save the Children announced on Sunday, it called back its search and rescue ship from the Mediterranean to Malta, as Libya's navy banned foreign vessels from entering coastal "search and rescue zone" for Europe-bound migrants.
German non-commercial organization Sea Eye suspended rescue missions in the Mediterranean Sea over security concerns after Libya's navy ordered foreign vessels to stay out of a coastal "search and rescue zone" for Europe-bound migrants, the organization said Sunday.
The EU member states should express solidarity with Italy and support its efforts aimed at tackling the ongoing migration crisis.
The EU member states should tackle the migrant crisis without shifting their responsibilities on the non-governmental organizations (NGOs), head of MSF mission in Italy told Sputnik.
The EU should elaborate safe alternatives to dangerous and often life-threatening trips via sea for asylum seekers to reach Europe.
In recent years, Sweden has seen a rise in drowning accidents, which has been ascribed to the influx of migrants, many of whom cannot swim at all. To address this problem, a nationwide project is being launched.
Bad treatment of refugees in the French city of Calais, including police violence against them, will not deter new arrivals, while the policy of hospitality could improve life of both city inhabitants and refugees, experts told Sputnik.
When in Finland, do like the Finns do. This must be the logic of Muslim asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq who according to recent reports are converting to Christianity by the hundred. Many of the apostates suggest they are facing persecution as infidels, which is why returning to their home countries is not an option.
While Sweden initially hailed the influx of migrants as a "competence rain" over the Nordic country's labor market, it seems like it's time to reconsider this over-optimistic assessment. Despite Sweden's efforts, almost no new arrivals attend school after settling in Sweden, sharply reducing their employment opportunities.
Of late, the EU has launched a series of measures aimed at stopping or at least slowing down the flow of migrants across the Mediterranean, including a ban on the export of rubber boats to the African country of Libya. According to a Norwegian researcher, though, the EU's measures are rather meaningless, as human smugglers cannot be stopped.
German diplomats compared refugee camps in Libya with "concentration camps." The living conditions in these facilities are almost unbearable, they revealed.
