The head of Buryatia, Aleksey Tsydenov, asked Vladimir Putin to help with the construction of a dam in Ulan-Ude. The head of the region estimated the probable damage from the flood at 319 billion rubles.

Tsydenov announced this at a meeting with the President of Russia, which was held by videoconference today. The head of Buryatia said that a critical rise in water has been observed on the Selenga river for the last two years. There are 48 thousand inhabitants in the flooded zone - 13 thousand houses, six schools, five kindergartens.

Previously, the construction of the dam was laid down in the Federal Target Program "Protection of Lake Baikal", but in 2017, due to the lack of design and estimate documentation, it was excluded. The documentation is ready for today.

Tsydenov also asked for help with the modernization of treatment facilities at Lake Baikal and the purchase of additional municipal buses. Vladimir Putin noted the importance of these issues and promised to formulate appropriate instructions to the Russian government.
