BLAGOVESHCHENSK, August 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov and Presidential Envoy to the Far East Federal District Viktor Ishayev have discussed main issues to deal with the flood, the ministry's spokesperson Irina Rossius told Itar-Tass.

Puchkov and Ishayev discussed food provision for the affected population to prevent illnesses among local residents, she noted.

The minister and the envoy also discussed further steps to eliminate the flood consequences and possible operations with hydro technical facilities, she added.
