MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s emergencies ministry has sent a convoy of truck with humanitarian aid to the Siberian republic of Tuva, where the settlement of Khovu-Aksy has been left without heat supplies amidst heavy frosts, a ministry spokesman told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The emergencies ministry will deliver 190 heaters and foodstuffs, with an overall weight of 65 tons,” the spokesman said. The vehicles with the humanitarian aid started from the city of Krasnoyarsk at 05:00 Moscow time.
Earlier, a ministry jet delivered to Tuva fan heaters, heating and ventilation units and electricity generators.
Since December 20, after a series of failure at the Khovu-Aksy thermal power plant, more than 3,300 out of the settlement’s 3,700 residents have been evacuated. More than 600 people have been accommodated at places of temporary accommodations, the rest – at their relatives’.
Efforts to re-launch the plant’s boiler are failing so far.
