MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian minister for emergency situations said on Monday that water reservoirs were unlikely to have caused floods in the Krasnodar territory.

“There were no indicators that water reservoirs would cause a sharp rise of water,” Vladimir Puchkov told journalists.

The minister said he had personally inspected all the dikes and flood-gates.

Puchkov said that a number of objective weather factors were the root causes for the recent floods.

“It was a combination of natural factors, i.e. torrential rain and huge base water levels that led to the catastrophic rise of water in rivers. That caused damage to people houses and facilities,” Puchkov said.
