KATHMANDU /Nepal/, May 11. /TASS/. Russian rescuers have left Nepal for Moscow on Monday, a TASS correspondent reported.
The correspondent said a Russian Emergencies Ministry Il-76 aircraft with Russian rescuers on board took off from Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport at 04:15 a.m. Moscow Time [01:15 UTC].
On board the plane are rescuers of the Tsentrospas detachment and the Leader center who took part in the search and rescue operation after a devastating earthquake that rocked Nepal last month.
Earlier, head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s interservice team in Nepal Alexander Romanov told TASS that Russian rescuers completed their work in Nepal.
"The government of Nepal has officially announced the end of the search and rescue operation in the republic. The humanitarian operation to address the consequences of the earthquake, as well as render medical assistance to the population, currently continues," Romanov said.
He said Russian rescuers examined 96 buildings, inspected 109 square kilometers of territory and cleared 53,956 square meters of debris.
A 7.9 magnitude earthquake rocked Nepal on April 25. A total of 70 aftershocks followed. More than 7,000 people have been killed and over 14,200 others injured. The quake has ruined 140,000 residential houses and has damaged another 140,000 buildings.
