The Russian government plans to allocate almost six billion rubles from the reserve fund to extinguish forest fires in the regions. First of all, the money will go to Yakutia, the Irkutsk region and the Krasnoyarsk Territory, where the most difficult situation has developed.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced the allocation of funding at a meeting of the Russian government. According to him, he had previously announced decisions on the direction of material support to extinguish forest fires in the regions.

“Fire extinguishing work is underway, the aircraft of the Ministry of Emergencies and the Ministry of Defense are using other equipment. This work should be continued, and it needs to be controlled, ”the Cabinet’s press service quoted Medvedev as saying.

Earlier, the Russian government additionally allocated 700 million rubles to extinguish natural fires in the Irkutsk region. For similar events in Yakutia, the Cabinet of Ministers planned to allocate more than 390 million rubles.
