ST. PETERSBURG, May 23 /ITAR-TASS/. Aircraft of Russia's Ministry for Emergency Situations /EMERCOM/ have delivered about 200 tonnes of humanitarian aid to the flood-stricken Serbia, Minister Vladimir Puchkov told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Russian rescuers evacuated over 3,000 people from the zones of flooding and 100,000 Serbians received humanitarian aid from Russia, he said.
“In Serbia, where the Russian EMERCOM is taking part in a large-scale international rescue operation, we are closely cooperating with the Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Centre, with our co-workers from Belarus and other countries,” he said.
The Russian rescue team of 72 people is equipped with two Ka-32 helicopters and everything needed for its work.
“At present we have expanded the territory of this humanitarian work to include Bosnia and Herzegovina, along with Serbia,” the minister said promising to enlarge the team “to a needed size.”
“The forecast is favourable so far,” Puchkov said.
