In the Trans-Baikal Territory, due to the fire hazard, the military personnel of the unmanned aviation units of the Eastern Military District (VVO) are monitoring possible sources of fire.

Aerial reconnaissance is conducted at an altitude of up to 1000 meters from the Orlan-10 unmanned systems, which are equipped with thermal imagers and video cameras. The use of UAVs significantly reduces the time for obtaining reliable data and significantly helps in coordinating the work of ground teams equipped with fire extinguishing means.

In addition, the Mi-8 AMTSh helicopters of the military aviation of the Air Defense Forces are in readiness for use. They are equipped with drainage devices VSU-5, allowing to discharge up to five tons of water. More than 100 military personnel and about 10 units of unmanned aircraft are involved in fire protection measures.
