Russian President Vladimir Putin called the timeline for the restoration of the Trans-Siberian Railway, part of which was destroyed due to the collapse of the bridge. According to the president, the restoration of the first branch will take from two to two and a half days, the second - about five days.

The head of state announced this today at a meeting with permanent members of the Security Council. He spoke about the timing of the restoration after the report on the situation of the head of the Ministry of Emergencies and the head of Russian Railways.

Vladimir Putin called on the government to pay close attention to the situation in the Far East, where the Transsib branch was damaged due to rains and train traffic was stopped.

“The life support of the respective regions must, of course, be ensured. I mean food groups of goods, and everything that is necessary for the life of enterprises, municipal services, utilities, ”Putin said.

On the Trans-Baikal Railway, a bridge collapsed on the Kuenga-Ukurei stretch on Friday morning due to undermining due to heavy rainfall. There are no casualties. The movement of trains in both directions of the Transsib has been stopped. The sale of tickets for trains going to the Far East via the Transsib has been suspended for three days.
