MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The geography of the international activities of the Russian rescue department covers all continents and the most remote regions of the world.
So, in the past 2020 alone, over 40 humanitarian operations abroad were carried out by the forces of the EMERCOM of Russia. Russian rescuers took part in measures to combat coronavirus, eliminate the consequences of natural and man-made disasters, and delivered cargoes of humanitarian and food aid.
In just 30 years, in response to emergencies abroad, units of the Russian Emergencies Ministry have carried out more than 500 humanitarian operations. Our rescuers are among the first to come to the aid of foreign countries in need of assistance. We provide assistance to foreign countries in clearing territories from explosive objects. Since 1996, more than 30 international projects have been implemented in this area. In addition, the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s aviation takes part in extinguishing wildfires and protecting settlements abroad.
In matters of international cooperation, the rescue department closely interacts with the Russian Foreign Ministry, jointly developing areas of international activity in the field of civil defense and protection from emergency situations.
Vladimir Solovyov, Director of the Department of International Activities of the EMERCOM of Russia, congratulated the diplomatic staff on their professional holidays, wishing their colleagues to strengthen the authority and influence of Russia on the world stage.
