Greece: Migrants stranded in Mytilene offered refuge on naval vessel

The Greek Naval vessel «Rodos» docked at the port of Mytilene, Lesbos on Wednesday to accommodate migrants who have been camping at the port or living in the overpopulated refugee camp. The ship was brought in to help the Moria refugee camp close by, that has been struggling to house over 20,000 migrants, as well as to accommodate those migrants who have been arriving recently. President of the... Еще European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has announced a €700 million ($779 million) aid package to help Greece deal with the large-scale influx of migrants after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan effectively opened the borders. President Erdogan accused the EU of failing to keep its financial promises to Turkey in return for keeping Turkey's borders with the EU closed to refugees. The statement came after at least 33 Turkish soldiers were killed in an airstrike in Syria's Idlib province last week.
