MOSCOW, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Defense Ministry continues withdrawal of the units it dispatched to the Far East to help eliminate the aftermaths of hitherto unseen floods, which plagued the region throughout August and September.
Along with the withdrawal, it is setting up a reserve of forces and equipment so as to be ready to face unpredictable deteriorations of the situation, the Defense Ministry’s information department said Thursday.
“A reserve of forces and equipment has been accumulated on the permanent bases and at airdromes of the Eastern Military District,” a spokesman for the press service said. “It is ready to perform the tasks that emerge most typically during the elimination of the aftermaths of emergency situations.”
The reserve includes 1,200 servicemen, 180 vehicles, ten Ilyushin-76 jets, and six helicopters.
Simultaneously, Defense Ministry services continue the efforts to disinfect the population centers, to rehabilitate roads and bridges, as well as to deliver foodstuffs and potable water to the areas of the Khabarovsk territory, the Jewish autonomous region, and the Amur region that have been affected by the floods especially severely.
