Vladimir Putin instructed the Russian government, the Ministry of Emergencies and the authorities of the Trans-Baikal Territory to provide funding to increase the security of the region by fire departments. They must complete these tasks by June 1 of this year.

The president gave the order following the meeting on the situation with floods and fires in the regions. Then the governor of the Trans-Baikal Territory, Alexander Osipov, said that because of the large distances between the villages, there are no fire departments in 42% of the settlements, so firefighters cannot arrive there on time.
