This, just, creates conditions for stable economic development of the country, ensures the protection of business and investments, ”said Aleksey Serko.
So, for incomplete 2021, the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia in the regions of the country organized rescue measures in 197 flooded settlements and more than 3 thousand wildfires were registered.

In modern economic conditions, legislation is also changing. Currently, work is underway to improve laws in the field of protecting the population and territories from emergencies.
The order of actions and legal interpretations on many important issues have already been considered and legally approved, including regulations for activities and powers in the field of fire supervision, licensing procedure, areas of responsibility of the authorities of municipal districts and local self-government have been defined. The activity of private and departmental fire brigades has been streamlined.

This work will continue, we hope for the support of colleagues from federal bodies, the legal community and, of course, from the Russian Lawyers’ Association, ”said Alexey Serko.
