From Federation News 06/01
Strasbourg, 09.03.2001 - Council of Europe Secretary General Walter Schwimmer today expressed his profound solidarity with the victims of unprecedented floods which have affected central Europe, particularly Ukraine, Hungary and Romania, for several days. He affirmed his solidarity with all the governments concerned.

But, it warns, the region's suffering could be long term.
