MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian government has ordered the allocation of over three billion roubles (1 rouble is equivalent approximately to 33 USD) to liquidate the aftermaths of powerful floods in Russia’s Far East, the Urals and the Volga region.
“At the request of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations, the Russian government has ordered the allocation of funds from the emergencies reserve fund to help the flood-stricken population and carry out priority emergency repair and restoration works. A total of 3.2 billion roubles have been allocated,” Irina Rossius, a Russian Emergencies Ministry spokesperson, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
She clarified that all people located in an emergency area would receive a one-time payment worth 10,000 roubles.
“Compensations will also be paid to those who lost part of their property: each family member will receive 50,000 roubles. The sum will increase to 100,000 roubles for those who lost all the property,” Rossius went on to say.
Over 1.5 billion roubles have been appropriated for the Amur region; over 86 million roubles for the Khabarovsk territory in the Far East; almost 530 million roubles for the Chelyabinsk region in the Urals, more than 462 million roubles for Bashkortostan, the Urals, over 48 million roubles for the Jewish Autonomous Region located in the Trans-Amur territory of the Russian Far East; 78.79 million roubles for Yakutia, the Far Eastern Federal District, and over 373 million roubles for the Primorye territory in the Far East.
According to Rossius, the funds allocated for priority repair and restoration works will help liquidating the flood’s aftermaths in full measure.
