ABAKAN, February 18 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin instructed the Emergencies Ministry and the Russian Academy of Sciences to draft a concept of a centre for forecasting and responding to emergency situations in the area of the Altai and Sayany mountains, a scene of strong earthquake in 2011.
The centre should be designed as one of the elements of a large system for responding and preventing emergency situations in seismic regions of Russia.
“I ask the Emergencies Ministry and the Russian Academy of Sciences to present concrete proposals concerning the creation of an inter-regional centre for forecasting, monitoring and responding to emergency situations in the Altai and Sayany mountain area… It should be based on modern seismic stations in the Republics of Tyva, Khakassia and Altai,” Putin said at a meeting on post-quake rehabilitation in these regions, held in Abakan on Saturday, February 18.
“Such facilities should be fully equipped and manned,” he added.
