To provide assistance to the local population of the Dalnerechensky District (Primorsky Territory) and the Dzhida District (the Republic of Buryatia), military engineers of the motorized rifle formations of the Eastern Military District (VVO) established pontoon crossings across the Dzhida and Bolshaya Ussurka rivers.

The servicemen came to the aid of local residents by organizing pontoon crossings, which are often the only way to communicate with the administrative centers of the regions, since the old dilapidated wooden bridges have fallen into disrepair.

The decision to establish a crossing over the Dzhida River was made by the commander of the Air Defense Forces, Hero of Russia, Colonel-General Gennady Zhidko, at the request of the governments of the constituent entities of Russia.

During the operation of engineering and technical structures, military specialists organize round-the-clock duty, carry out daily monitoring of the condition of bridges, and measure the water level in the river.

As previously reported, military engineers of the combined arms army of the Air Defense Forces in the Amur Region set up a temporary crossing over Lake Khutorskoye in the village of Ushakovo.

In total, over 3.5 thousand people and about 2.8 thousand vehicles were crossed by the servicemen with the help of engineering and technical facilities.

All three crossings will operate until late autumn this year.
