KHABAROVSK, August 30 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s President Vladimir Putin met with residents of flood-hit Khabarovsk on Friday in the regional "Rus" Palace of Culture and Sport, where 20 people evacuated from their flooded homes reside now.
The President talked with residents of Bolshoi Ussuriisky Island, which is most severely hit.
A female pensioner told Putin that her home was completely flooded. The President said he had already discussed the situation with the governors.
"We will help everyone to restore housing, to repair it or completely reconstruct. We will provide funds from the federal budget, as it was in Krymsk. On the average, a family of three people who have lost their home will receive two million rubles," he said.
"It is necessary for the authorities to promptly find out what housing already exists," he added.
