On January 31, a weekly conference call was held under the leadership of Acting Minister of the Russian Emergencies Ministry Alexander Chupriyan.

Last week, dangerous and adverse meteorological phenomena were observed on the territory of 22 constituent entities of the Russian Federation. The bad weather led to disruption of power supply and road communication, damage to the roofs of buildings and flooding of territories. So, at present, five residential buildings and 93 household plots remain flooded in the Krasnodar Territory. Work continues on pumping water, restoring roofs and clearing roads. The restriction of traffic on the Georgian Military Highway remains.

During the conference call, a decrease in the number of fires in the country by 14% was noted: in just a week, 3.6 thousand fires were eliminated. More than 200 of them were extinguished with the participation of voluntary fire brigades – more than 500 people and 260 pieces of equipment were involved in the liquidation.
