IRKUTSK, May 15. /TASS/. Eleven Russian regions have been facing a complex flood situation, Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov said.
"As for the fight against floods, as many as 59 settlements in 27 regions remain flooded. The situation is particularly complex in 11 regions, the Tyumen region has been hit hard by the natural disaster.
