Vladimir Putin instructed to create a center of earthquake prediction in the Altai and Sayan. He said this today during his working trip to Khakassia meeting on earthquake response in Siberia.
They also discussed the restoration of regional transport infrastructure. Special attention is paid to the need to prime the resettlement of old and dilapidated housing, which poses the greatest threat to people. As a result of the earthquakes in September and December 2011 in the disaster area were more than 1,000 settlements, which are home to about 6 million people. The most affected region was the Tuva.
Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation:
— Need to further assist the Republic of Tyva, because she was in the midst of, or damage it most, and the people most affected. According to preliminary estimates, we will have to send for help Tuva around 400 million rubles. I ask that the funds have been primarily aimed at helping people to rebuild housing. And, of course, to restore the infrastructure.
