MOSCOW, July 23 /TASS/. Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov has offered help to Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, in extinguishing wild fires, including the provision of fire-fighting aircraft, the Russian Emergencies Ministry press service told TASS.
"The ministry’s head, Vladimir Puchkov, has sent telegrams with an offer to grant practical aid in liquidating the natural disasters to Croatia’ Interior Minister Ranko Ostoic and BiH Security Minister Dragan Mektic" the Emergencies Ministry’s press service went on to say.
