Twenty-four kilometers of dykes and three gateway to the Danube were in operation in the final stage — reconstruction of the fourth lock. All of it has been spent forty-five million hryvnia. Danube dam is made in the calculations of last year’s water consumption, and the Emergency Situations Ministry assured — the population of the villages close to the river is protected from flooding.
Vladimir Bodelan, Chief of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Ukraine in Odessa region: part of the dam, which we assume to use — it’s a small part of the great work to be done to protect our country. We are watching the situation in the region Vilkovo, where because of the speed of the river eroded our coast, especially near the water line coming to the home.
Protective Danube dams were built in the middle of the last century. For the most part this earth mounds, which have strengthened. This system is in need of modernization. As the allocation of funds for the work of the state budget, work to strengthen the levees will be further qualified enough.
In addition, the target program of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the region for three years. The Head of the Main Directorate of MOE in the Odessa area has already declared at a press conference. One of its most important points — the de-mining of the Odessa region and the destruction of shells left over from World War II.
Vladimir Bodelan: that is, we know that recently there was a case in Ovidiopolsky area when the tractor exploded on a mine. In peacetime, it is simply out of the ordinary situation.
