PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, April 12 (Itar-Tass) — The first ships with a cargo of food and fuel have managed to get to the port of the district center Tilichiki, Olyutorsky District, in the north-east of the Kamchatka Peninsula across the ice fields in Karagin and Korf Gulfs, social programmes' minister Sergei Khabarov announced on Thursday.
Khabarov said thes hip Tairovo with food supplies and the tanker Egvekinot are lying in the roads there for discharge operations. The ship Tarava with a cargo of food is still unable to get to the port and is drifting in the ice.
For more than three weeks, ships with food supplies have been unable to get to the Olyutorsky District of the Kamchatka Territory owing to heavy ice situation. A shortage of food ensued.
By a decision of the Territorial commission for emergencies, nine tonnes of food and flour for the local bakery were delivered by an An-26 plane. About 1.5 million roubles were allocated from the Kamchatka government's reserve fund for carrying out a food supply operation. The food shortage problem was thus removed.
