MOSCOW, August 1 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian government will allocate more than 114 million roubles to the Siberian Kemerovo region to recover from a recent earthquake, a spokeswoman for the Russian emergencies ministry told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
A draft government resolution to the effect worked out by the Russian emergencies ministry was approved at today’s government meeting.
“It is planned to allocate funds from the Russian government’s reserve fund to help those affected by the June 19 earthquake,” the spokeswoman said. “The earthquake affected the town of Belovo, the Belovsky, Guryevsky and Krasnobrodsky districts.”
The quake damaged more than 5,000 private houses, 300 multi-apartment homes, social infrastructure and utilities facilities. Preliminary damage was estimated at more than 150 million roubles. Twenty-five million roubles have been allocated to repair quake-inflicted damages from the regional budget.
“The administration of the Kemerovo region will receive more than 114 million roubles of federal funds to sponsor repair works. It is also planned to render one-time material aid to people who lost their property in the earthquake,” the spokeswoman noted, adding that more than 5,500 people were eligible for such aid. “Apart from that, before the end of 2013 the Russian finance ministry plans to issue 217 state housing certificates to people who lost their housing.”
The Russian emergencies ministry also drafted a government resolution to issue one-time material and financial aid to residents of Russia’s republic of Mordolvia who lost their property in the spring floods of 2012. “The help is to be issued to about 150 people who had no domicile registration at the moment of the calamity and were not put on the lists of people eligible to aid. It is planned to allocate 5.940 million roubles to the government of Mordovia from the Russian Reserve Fund,” the spokeswoman added.
