MOSCOW, September 29 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s opposition party Civil Platform has raised more than 30 million roubles to be transferred as relief aid to people who lost their homes and property in the recent devastating floods in the Russian Far Eastern region, Civil Platform leader Mikhail Prokhorov told Russia’s TV Channel One, which organized the “All Together” aid-raising action, on Sunday.
At the same time, he lamented over obstacles volunteers had to face because of gaps in the current legislation. “Many volunteers cannot go there [to the flooded regions]. For instance, a state of emergency was imposed there, so volunteers are not allowed to go. So, there are cases when along with helping people volunteers have to hide from the police,” he noted.
The charity marathon was launched on Russia’s TV Channel One on Sunday morning. Taking part in it are presenters of TV Channel One, musicians, movie stars and show business people, there are live transmissions from the cities and towns that have been affected by the flood, as well as from several studios and sites in Moscow. A concert will be given at Gorky Park within the framework of the charity marathon.
Anyone can join this action by sending an SMS message to a short number displayed on TV screen. The funds raised during the marathon will be transferred to people who lost their homes and property in the recent devastating floods.
