The latest on the refugee crisis in Munich. 

Bavarian Prime Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) said in an interview with Welt am Sonntag today, that: “Bavaria will soon intensify its contacts with Moscow.” He said that there will not be a solution to the conflict without Russia. He continued:”If the powers would coordinate their air-strikes against ISIS, that would be a first sign of hope.” Seehofer ruled out the possibility of Germany engaging in the conflict.

Regarding the refugee crisis, Seehoher called for more support for Turkey. The one million Euros that the European Union has planned for refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan are “not enough by far” in his opinion. The European Union must raise much more money and help the local people. "The EU has failed for too long." One must look at exactly what the Turkish President Erdogan demands in return. "But I am in favor of realpolitik action in this situation."

In other Munich and refugee crisis news, Bavaria plans to employ 3.700 people in order to better cope with huge numbers of refugees and migrants pouring into the southernmost part of German. Most of them will be teachers and policemen. Bavaria also plans to build from 6.000 to 7.000 additional new flats starting from 2019. The plan is also to integrate/create jobs for roughly 60.000 refugees and migrants until the same year.
