MOSCOW, August 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Obsolete bomb shelters will be reconditioned throughout Russia's regions in a program driven by the Emergencies Ministry.
The announcement by Emergency Minister Vladimir Puchkov on Thursday comes a day after Communist Party deputies in the State Duma called for bringin the shelters up to standard.
Shelters should conform to regulations “bringing them into proper condition and getting them ready for use for intended purposes”, Puchkov told ITAR-TASS, setting a year-end deadline to complete the work.
Upgrades will be carried out in consultation with regional and local authorities, the minister said, adding that shelters that are maintained not by government institutions should be brought under public control.
