MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. The unprecedented migration crisis in the EU could create problems for Russia in future, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s department for humanitarian cooperation and human rights said on Tuesday.
"In the long term, the inability of the EU countries to agree with one another to solve the migration crisis could become a certain problem for us," Anatoly Viktorov told Russia’s upper house of parliament, the Federation Council.
He said there could be attempts to shift the financial burden of the crisis on the international community, including Russia. The situation in the southern and central parts of Europe could deteriorate if no solution to the crisis is found, Viktorov added.
Officials remain silent on why hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants have flooded into Europe, he said. Meanwhile, the root causes of the crisis are "the military interference from outside into domestic affairs of sovereign states and the attempts to destabilize them."
Europe has been at the epicenter of the unprecedented migration crisis. In the past months, the flow of migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East, and particularly Syria, to the European countries has increased.
According to Eurostat, 710,000 migrants have officially applied for asylum in 28 EU member states since the beginning of the year.
