MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Russia's Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense (EMERCOM) is expected to submit a new doctrine of civil defense in case of manmade disasters and military threats, Izvestia daily said in a report published on Tuesday.
The new doctrine matches today's reality and presupposes comprehensive upgraded protection of the country's population.
"Unlike the doctrine that is in effect now the new one won't presuppose the so-called general evacuation, under which the entire civilian population should walk out of a city on foot in case of approach of enemy forces," Sergey Akatyev, the chief of EMERCOM's department for civil defense and protection of the population told the newspaper.
Analysis of the military conflict occurring nowadays shows combat operations mostly employ high-precision weaponry that does not envision the so-called 'area saturation' with gunfire, bombing, and so on and that is why the new strategy will make emphasis on shelters and other civil defence installations.
"EMERCOM is introducing a new category of installations the protective harbors that will be built in city districts," Akatyev said. "Unlike the old Soviet-era bomb shelters, they won't be aimed at protecting against nuclear strikes but will provide protection against shell fragments and the debris of collapsing buildings."
He indicated that a major change in the civil defence doctrine had been prompted, among other things, by the ongoing developments in eastern Ukraine and particularly in two largest cities in that area, Donetsk and Lugansk.
