The European Commission (EC) most probably will ask the Baltic states to take in twice fewer refugees than unofficial sources have been reporting so far: Lithuania's share would be around 780 people, the Dutch daily De Volkskrant reports.

The Dutch media grounds its reports on unofficial EC documents and says that Brussels wants to distribute 120,000 migrants across the EU member-states. As a result of a smaller burden on the Baltics, other members - the Netherlands, Germany, and France - will have to take in more.

According to De Volkskrant's sources, Latvia will be asked to accept 526 refugees, Estonia - 373, Poland - 9,287. The majority of refugees will go to Germany (31,443), France (24,031) and Spain (14,931).
