MOSCOW, April 25. /TASS/. No reports have come about Russian nationals injured or killed in the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday, Russia’s embassy in Kathmandu told TASS.
"There have been no reports about injured or killed Russians, including those in the mountains," the source said confirming that Russians who turned to the assembly point at the area of the Russian cultural centre in the Nepalese capital "have been provided with sleeping coaches and food."
When asked if information on possible evacuation of Russians from Nepal was available, he replied that "There are not any concrete answers to this question. Top diplomats at the embassy are keeping in touch with the Emergencies Ministry but it is still unclear what has been agreed."
Along with this, the embassy said the aftershocks were still continuing.
Nepal’s police say that nearly 1,500 people had died in the devastating earthquake that rocked that mountainous country on Saturday. The authorities declared an emergency rule in the regions affected by the calamity.
