MOSCOW, September 4 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Prime Minister and presidential plenipotentiary representative in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev will fly to Khabarovsk on Wednesday evening to engage in urgent flood relief efforts. He said he would fly there with Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov.
Trutnev said the government had resolved to form a committee to oversee cleaning up the aftermath of the region's devastation following a decree from President Vladimir Putin.
“The situation in the disaster area remains difficult,” he said. “The water level keeps growing in Khabarovsk and Komsomolsk-on-Amur. The peaks of the flood are expected from September 6 to 9 in Khabarovsk and from September 11 to 15 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.”
Work would be intensive. The activity of federal authorities should be coordinated, he added.
