GORNO-ALTAISK, December 30 (Itar-Tass) — Humanitarian aid from across Russia is supplied to the settlement of Khovy-Aksy in Siberia’s Tuva, where a heat station broke down on December 20.
An An-74 plane of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations carrying 60 potbelly stoves took off from Irkutsk earlier on Thursday for the capital of Tuva, Kyzyl, the press service of the Irkutsk region’s department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situation reported.
A total of 1,140 apartments with centralized heating have remained without heating as a result of a chain of breakdowns starting from December 20. About 3,000 local residents had to be evacuated as a result.
More than 400 people currently live at temporary accommodation stations. The other evacuated residents stay at their relatives in nearby settlements. An emergency situations regime has been imposed in the settlement, and repair work is underway there.
Khovy-Aksy has already received humanitarian aid from Moscow, the Krasnoyarsk region, Altai and Khakassia. On December 30, the settlement received humanitarian aid collected in capital Kyzyl, including food, warm clothing, potbelly stoves as well as money. Heaters, mineral water, foodstuffs have been bought with this money for local residents as well as for repair brigades that work in difficult conditions. New Year presents for children were also bought with this money.
All apartments in which people continue living, all in all 696 people, have been supplied with furnaces and firewood.
