MOSCOW, July 21 (Itar-Tass) —— Nearly 30,000 flood victims in the Krasnodar Territory have been paid cash compensations, the press-service of the United Russia party said after a meeting of the ad-hoc group of the State Duma created for extending assistance to the affected.
The basic compensation is 10,000 rubles. Nearly ten thousand people - 9,346 – have been paid a compensation for lost housing – 150,000 rubles per person. A total of 34,650 sustained material damage.
The head of the United Russia faction in the State Duma, working group coordinator Andrei Vorobyov, has reiterated the authorities’ determination to continue to provide assistance to the affected.
“Our task is to do our utmost to help the people of the Kuban area and all those who participate in eliminating the effects of the emergency,” he said.
“The legislators have managed to establish online feedback between the population and the authorities. The problems the people have been taking to the crisis management center all these days were resolved at once and the authorities’ response was instant and specific,” said the head of the State Duma’s working group in the Krasnodar Territory, Alexander Remezkov (of the United Russia party).
Nearly 19,500 people and 2,500 vehicles dealt with the floods that hit southern Russia early this month. In the city of Krymsk alone 1,121 households have been cleared of mud and debris, 2,300 cubic meters of water has been pumped out and 108,000 cubic meters of garbage removed.
