MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin demanded the work be organized strictly to provide finances to recovery efforts in the Far East and build new houses for residents, who were hit by the flood.
The leaders of the Finance Ministry, the Healthcare Ministry, the Defense Ministry and the Labor Ministry told Putin that funding had been rendered to the flood-hit areas.
“The flood-hit areas should receive funding in time. It is clear that it is impossible to build all houses at once. But it is necessary to do everything possible to avoid any delays,” the president said.
“As for payment of compensations for lost property, this should be done immediately after the commissions, which estimate damage, complete their work,” Putin said.
