CHERYOMUSHKI VILLAGE /Khakasia/, August 27 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has demanded the soonest repairs of all energy facilities damaged by the flood in Russia's Far East.
"The energy facilities should be restored within the shortest timeframe; I'm drawing everybody's attention to it," Putin said at a conference over the development of electric power generation in Siberia and the Far East.
The head of state noted the necessity to ensure safe operation of waterworks in the flood-stricken areas, in particular at the Zeisk and Bureiskaya hydroelectric power plants.
The efforts to overcome the aftermath of the flood will require reliable and stable electricity supply, Putin added.
