Croatia Sends Aid to Lithuania to Cope with Upsurge in Migrants

ZAGREB, 16 July 2021 - The Croatian government decided on Friday to send tents, bunk beds, blankets, pillows and sleeping bags to Lithuania after the Baltic country has taken in more than 2,000 migrants in recent weeks.

The number of crossings of irregular migrants, mainly Syrians and Iraqis, from Belarus to Lithuania has increased 25 times compared to the whole of 2020, Croatian Interior Minister Davor Božinovć said at a cabinet meeting.

These developments prompted Lithuania to activate the EU Civil Protection Mechanism and ask other EU member states for assistance.

Croatia's aid is equivalent to HRK 1.05 million (€140,000).
