MOSCOW, June 3 (Itar-Tass) - Russian citizens have not been hit by the flood in the Czech Republic, the Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.

“Due to the disastrous flood that hit the Czech Republic the government decided to introduce a state of emergency on the whole territory of the country. The Russian Embassy in Prague and the Russian consulates-general in Brno and Karlovy Vary thoroughly study the situation and integrate data,” the ministry said.

“There are no victims among Russian citizens,” it added.

“Specialists note that the situation remains difficult. The peak of the water rise does not occur. We will watch the situation in the Czech Republic,” the ministry said.

Friday’s heavy rains in the Czech Republic led to the flood. The third danger level was declared in 40 cities, including Prague. The city authorities issued an order to place barriers along the Vltava River. Nine metro stations were closed in Prague. Highway traffic was stopped.

Three people died and three persons are considered missing.

According to the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute, it will rain till the evening.
