On August 26, on the basis of TASS, a press conference of the First Deputy Minister of EMERCOM of Russia was held, announcing the upcoming unprecedented exercises in the Arctic zone.

Alexander Bondar, Director of the Department of Educational, Scientific and Technical Activities of the EMERCOM of Russia, took part in the event.

“This is the first time such exercises are being held. Their peculiarity lies in their scientific research orientation, ”A. Chupriyan noted.

The reason for the large-scale exercises was an emergency situation that occurred in connection with an oil spill in the city of Norilsk last year. The most difficult work to eliminate the consequences in the Arctic, carried out by the Russian Emergencies Ministry, was carried out for the first time in world practice. The experience gained has become the starting point for the development and development of methods and technologies for the protection of the population and territories of the Arctic region, which is distinguished by the peculiarity of the climate, landscape and geographical location.

“The exercises will be held on September 7 and 8 this year in the vast territory of 7 constituent entities of the Russian Federation: from Murmansk to Pevek. It is necessary to solve 98 experimental and research problems with the participation of more than 6 thousand specialists, ”said the First Deputy Head of the Rescue Department.

As part of the exercise, interdepartmental interaction will be organized between 18 federal executive bodies and state corporations, as well as 5 economic entities of the Russian Federation.

During the exercise, 12 scenarios for the elimination of emergencies on water and land are to be worked out. The business program includes 9 events held in Murmansk, Norilsk, Naryan-Mar, Yakutsk, Vorkuta and Moscow. In addition, a number of scientific, socially significant and cultural and leisure activities will be implemented. Specialists of the EMERCOM of Russia will transfer 700 sets of life safety textbooks and methodological materials on safety to schools in the Arctic zone. Rescuers will spend a “safety week” for the children, visiting educational institutions and talking about their actions in difficult situations. An extensive environmental campaign will also be organized: with the involvement of the population and volunteers, a significant area will have to be cleared of garbage.

Currently, 17 foreign countries have shown interest in the upcoming exercises, which will certainly become unique in many ways.
