KRASNODAR, July 15 (Itar-Tass) —— A popular control committee has been set up in the town of Krymsk, Krasnodar Territory, to monitor repair works after a recent devastating flood, a spokesman for the Krasnodar Territory governor told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
The committee is tasked to help people restore their normal life as soon as possible. It is seen as a link between ordinary people and the authorities, the military, rescuers, and volunteers involved in the repair works in Krymsk. “The committee will oversee the distribution of humanitarian aid, clear-up operations, debris removal, repair works at infrastructure facilities and roads, and payment of compensation to those who lost their property in the flood,” Nikolai Miroshnichenko, chairman of the Krymsk Council of Veterans and one of the committee’s organizers, told Itar-Tass.
Apart from that, the committee will provide information assistance to the city residents, explaining them how to reissue lost documents and fill formalities to get their compensations.
“Popular control groups is not our invention. Such groups were organized in settlements after natural disasters,” Miroshnichenko said. “We shall help, explain, connect people with necessary agencies and control assistance rendered to them.”
