KHABAROVSK, August 29 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin finds it necessary to form a governmental committee to steamline cleanup efforts in the aftermath of Far East floods.
“An emergency headquarters and a committee headed by the chief executive of a Russian federal constituent territory should be set up in each region affected by the flood,” the president said at a meeting devoted to the flood clean-up in Khabarovsk on Thursday.
Putin also ordered the Investigative Committee to inspect actions of all officials during the floods.“Since independent specialists have a proper opinion regarding this, and people are saying that they doubt that all public servants, including those in charge of the hydroelectric power industry, acted in strict compliance with the instructions given to them and the effective legislation, actions of all public servants should be investigated and analyzed very attentively. I ask you to report to me about these issues,” the president said.
