On Sakhalin, a rescue operation begins to rescue eight fishermen who were on a torn ice floe. The incident occurred in the Makarovsky district of the region.

According to the Main Directorate of the Russian Emergencies Ministry for the Sakhalin Region, the ice floe was torn off at about 6-30 Moscow time (14-30 local time). At that moment, there were five men and three women on it. Emergencies Ministry officials tried to send a boat after them, but strong winds and rough seas prevented them from filming. Now the ice floe is one and a half kilometers from the coast.

To save people, a helicopter of the Ministry of Emergency Situations is preparing to fly to the place of emergency - the time of arrival will be from half an hour to 50 minutes, but if the wind dies down, the fishermen will again try to take off with the help of boats.
