By order of the commander of the Eastern Military District, Hero of Russia, Colonel-General Gennady Zhidko, military engineers of the combined-arms army of the Air Defense Forces set up a temporary crossing over Lake Khutorskoye. This decision was made at the request of the Governor of the Amur Region.

The ferry crossing was built across the reservoir due to the destruction of the road bridge by the flood. Its functioning is provided by several dozen servicemen of engineering units from a separate motorized rifle unit of the Air Defense Forces, stationed in the region.

For the continuous operation of the engineering and technical structure, the servicemen organized round-the-clock duty. The state of technology is monitored on a daily basis. A visual inspection and measurements of the water level are carried out. The length of the crossing connecting the village of Ushakovo with the regional center is 174 meters.

The ferry will operate until mid-November this year.
