MOSCOW, June 14, 19:29 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s government has sent over 1.1 billion roubles to people, hit by the flood in the south of Siberia, the Emergency Situations Ministry spokesman has said.
“Over 86.2 million roubles have been provided to Khakassia. About 587 million roubles have been allocated to the Republic of Altai. Over 453.2 million roubles have been sent to the Altai Territory,” the ministry’s spokesman, Alexander Drobyshevsky told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
