VOLGOGRAD, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Astrakhan authorities and EMERCOM specialists provide psychological aid and support for the people affected by the explosion.
Hot breakfast was offered at a temporary accommodation station at a school for people evacuated from the building, a rescuer at the site told Itar-Tass.
The people are gradually recovering from the shock after the tragedy, but they need constant care of doctors and psychologists, who remained there throughout the night and did everything to help them, the rescuer said, noting that particular attention was paid to the relatives of the people whose fate was unknown yet.
Astrakhan authorities set up an aid station for the affected people at the social service centre "Family" in the city. A station will be also opened to collect necessary things for the people.
On Monday evening, the Astrakhan Region's Governor Alexander Zhilkin reported to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that the people were accommodated at the school, but there were new buildings and it was possible to give new housing to them there. The governor also said aid would be provided for those who lost their flats to settle at another place, one million roubles for each of the flats.
Four dead bodies were recovered from the debris after the explosion. The bodies of two men and one woman were found earlier, and at 08:20 Moscow time on Tuesday, rescuers found the fourth. The fate of six people remains unknown. Five people, including one child, are in hospitals.
The rescue operation is continuing at the site.
