ULAN-UDE, April 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The situation in the village of Gunei in the Trans-Baikal Territory, which is faced with a steppe fire threat, remains under control. Appropriate fire-fighting forces are brought to the site.
Governor Ravil Geniatulin on Friday at a meeting in Aginskoye, the Buryatia area, where steppe fires are raging, ordered municipalities, law-enforcement authorities and fire-fighting services to do everything to prevent casualties and further losses of homes and facilities, as the windstorm weather will remain for two three days more, the governor's press service told Itar-Tass.
The regional government's vice-premier and head of the Aginskoye administration Sokto Mazhiyev is appointed as chief coordinator to provide aid for the fire-affected people. Money will be promptly provided for the people for first needs, and assistance will be rendered to give them documents to replace the lost ones.
Housing construction issues must be settled as soon as possible to begin the construction of houses no later than in May. The damage must be estimated, and appropriate documents must be processed. The region's authorities plan to ask the federal government to provide additional financial aid. A charity account will be opened for the people who lost their homes. Money raising and gathering of things will be organized for them. Houses will be built. Nobody will be left in trouble, Geniatulin assured.
