BRUSSELS - Serbia can count on EUR 1 billion worth of aid from the European Union Solidarity Fund in dealing with the long-term consequences of the catastrophic floods, Kristalina Georgieva, the European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, said on Monday.
Bulgaria was among the first countries to offer Serbia assistance for coping with the damage caused by the heavy rains, according to EU Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva.
Georgieva's press office announced Friday that the Serbian authorities had sought cooperation under the European Civil Protection Mechanism, according to reports of the Bulgarian National Radio.
Four Bulgarian parties would win seats in the European Parliament if the elections were now, according to the latest survey of Sova Harris agency.
The ruling Socialist Party (BSP) increases its lead over the main opposition center-right GERB Party. The Socialists would receive 21.9% in the Euro-vote, while GERB would come second with 20.6%, the survey shows.
