MOSCOW, August 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Ministry for Emergency Situations is ready to send more aircraft to Serbia to help fight wildfires, but there is no need for this so far, Valery Shuikov, the deputy head of the international activities department of Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations, now in Serbia, told Russian reporters.
He said two aircraft of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations - Be-200 and Il-76 - are now in Serbia fighting wildfires. They were flown to Serbia about a week ago.
Shuikov said the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations can send more aircraft to Serbia but there is no need for this so far. He said the fire raging in the national park in Serbia where Russian planes are used now will be put out in a few days.
