The number of refugees and undocumented migrants who enter Greece through its eastern sea borders has skyrocketed over the past year, reports the Greek Office of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and calls for immediate assistance by the EU.
By the end of August, 22,089 people had entered the country through the eastern Aegean Sea this year, marking a dramatic increase of 223.22% compared to 2013. The situation is expected to aggravate even further, with 8,000 people having crossed the border in September alone.
