The Russian government has proposed making the evacuation of citizens from emergency zones mandatory. Currently, evacuation can be forced only under a state of emergency or a counter-terrorist operation.

As the RBC, the draft law on the obligation to leave the emergency zone, subject to the appropriate decision of the authorities, was introduced by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation to the State Duma.

The state of emergency is introduced only by a presidential decree, the state of emergency can be established by regional authorities. In April last year, Vladimir Putin signed a law according to which the federal government also received the right to introduce an emergency regime both at the regional and national levels.

The authority to make a decision on forced evacuation will be with the special commissions of the government and regional authorities. Most often, an emergency regime is introduced during floods, earthquakes, fires and other similar natural phenomena.

The head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations Evgeny Zinichev announced the need to introduce mandatory evacuation of the population at the end of 2019, after large-scale floods in Siberia and the Far East. The number of flood victims in 2019 in the Irkutsk region reached 45 thousand people... The region was introduced federal emergency mode... According to experts, the flood damage exceeded 31 billion rubles. The death toll from the natural disaster reached 26 people.

Due to the floods in 2019, 278 residential premises were damaged in the Amur Region. In 2019, the victims received 327,9 million rubles from the reserve fund of the Russian government as financial assistance. They received 16 million rubles from the regional budget through Social Security.
