In addition to financial assistance, the Interior Ministry has provided material assistance worth more than €50,000 to the town of Bijeljina in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was also hit by floods. The assistance includes slurry pumps, power generators, anti-flood bags, raincoats and rubber shoes, ministry spokesperson Peter Lazarov told TASR.
