Financial assistance from reserves administered by Prime Minister Iveta Radičová will be provided to areas that are suffering from a lack of both drinking and non-potable water following the persistent cold snap that has affected Slovakia for more than a week, the Government Office press department said, as reported by the TASR on Tuesday, February 7.

A crisis team which has been set up at the Interior Ministry is co-ordinating the provision of aid to locals in the hardest-hit areas.

The government is set to discuss the latest developments at its meeting on Wednesday and will undertake measures to tackle the situation, said the office. Additional funding from the premier's reserves will be earmarked towards helping those worst affected.
