The Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia, on instructions from Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, will develop proposals for the disposal of toxic substances at an abandoned chemical plant in the city of Usolye-Sibirskoye, the Irkutsk Region. The emergency mode has been in place there since November last year.

At the abandoned industrial zone there are about 22 tanks with silicon tetrachloride, thousands of tons of oil products, a number of buildings are contaminated with metallic mercury. According to experts, if you do not start their disposal, toxic substances can get into the city, forests and rivers, which will lead to an environmental disaster throughout the region.

According to the press service of the regional branch of United Russia, the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment Dmitry Kobylkin has to offer measures for the demercurization of the mercury electrolysis shop and the disposal of other poisonous substances of Khimprom. The Russian Emergencies Minister Yevgeny Zinichev should help in this.
