TRENDS AND KEY FIGURES
In April, nearly 7,300 refugees and migrants entered Europe via Italy, Greece and Spain, bringing the number of refugees and migrants who have arrived by land and sea routes to these three countries to nearly 24,300 in the first four months of 2018. This marks a significant decrease of 49% compared to the first four months of 2017, a period in which just over 48,000 refugees and migrants entered Europe via these three countries.
The Ukraine conflict has led to a sharp deterioration in Russia's relations with the West since 2014. In response to the conflict, the US and the EU have imposed sanctions on Russian officials, as well as on the Russian financial, energy and defence sectors; firms in these sectors cannot raise debt on US or EU financial markets. Russia has responded with a ban on almost all Western food imports (which has helped Russia to develop its food industry). New US sanctions were announced in March and April 2018.
Fire and rescue divisions of the Russian Emergency Ministry keep on helping people whose houses are located in flooded areas. Those who have refused to go to temporary shelters are provided with foodstuffs, essentials and medicines. Livestock, pets and birds are being evacuated.
Managing bodies and forces of the Emergency Ministry’s Volgograd Region Directorate are working under the state of emergency. As of 7 April, 61 people, including 27 children, are staying at temporary shelters. Water has been pumped out of 19 houses and debris has been removed from 47 yards.
