“You will not be thrown into the big family of the Ministry of Emergency Situations. We will work with each family individually and resolve all emerging issues, including the education of children, ”said A. Chupriyan, Acting Head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, while communicating with the families of the dead rescuers.

A. Chupriyan said that they will be paid the same compensation as the relatives of the killed miners.

He expressed his sincere condolences on behalf of the entire Ministry. “Whatever I say now, whatever words I say, is unlikely to ease the pain of loss. But you and I will now have to live with this feeling. Your family members were courageous people who chose this difficult profession. Mine rescuers are the last hope of miners in trouble, ”A. Chupriyan said.

The funeral of three dead mine rescuers will take place on November 28. The bodies of two remain in the mine for now. “And now one of the tasks that we face is to raise the bodies of our comrades,” said the acting head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.
