The Ministry of the Interior will send this week 192 large tents suitable for winter conditions to Hungary through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. 
The tents will be used to accommodate refugees arriving in the country, said an official press release on Monday. 
The tents will be sent to respond to Hungary's request for assistance to EU Member States and other states participating in the Mechanism to provide temporary accommodation, especially tents, suitable for winter conditions.
To provide the assistance, the Ministry of the Interior has worked closely with the Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command. 
The Ministry will purchase the tents from the Defences Forces and send them to Hungary. To maintain their domestic accommodation capacity, the Defence Forces will acquire the same amount of new tents in Finland, the press release added.
