LJUBLJANA, September 18. /TASS/. Slovenia has halted train service at the Dobova border crossing with Croatia, the country’s railways company announced on Friday, in a move to stem the refugee flow.
"In line with the agreement between Slovenia’s and Croatia’s police, the passenger traffic at the Dobova border crossing has been stopped," the company said in a statement.
The decision comes after the first groups of refugees have arrived in Slovenia in trains. Late on Thursday, police found 300 refugees in one of the trains. Only half of them had the necessary documents. The others are due to be taken back to Croatia.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday Moscow is deeply concerned about the situation connected with a mass influx to Europe of refugees from the Middle East and Northern Africa.
"We note inefficiency of efforts of EU member states on the resolution of this crisis," Zakharova said. "The situation has actually been left unattended.""The reason is the absence of consent inside the European Union regarding practical measures to solve that difficult and long-pending problem," she said.
