Refugees: the Balkan route


To illustrate the massive influx of refugees into the EU and neighbouring countries, the Commission's Audiovisual Service has produced a new video stockshock showing refugees arriving in Greece and their route through the Balkan countries into EU countries further north. The stockshot features footage from Lesbos, Kos, Pireus, Athens, Greek/FYROM border, Serbian/Hungarian border, Budapest, Bicske, Hungarian/Austrian border, Vienna, Traiskirchen, Munich and Brussels.
