MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - The government commission, which deals with the elimination of the consequences of the flood in the Far East, will take additional decisions to provide aid to the flood-hit residents, Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov said on Monday.
The commission will gather for a regular session on October 1 and the session will be chaired by presidential plenipotentiary representative to the Far East Federal District Yuri Trutnev.
“As deputy head of the government commission I set the task to continue the work to cope with the consequences of the flood in the area. We’ll take a decision to step up the efforts to provide aid to those, who were hit by the flood, in order to restore housing and increase resistibility of the social infrastructure,” the minister said.
Over 13 billion rubles have been provided from the federal budget to pay compensations and material aid, Puchkov said.
