“Everything is going according to plan – data on the readiness of temporary accommodation centers is being updated, the procedure for providing material assistance has been determined, additional methods of delivering people to the regions, for example, by rail, are appearing. The first trains will leave Taganrog for Voronezh today, where four TAPs have also been prepared for the IDPs,” said A. Chupriyan.
Almost 14,000 places have also been prepared for temporary accommodation in the Rostov Region. Medical posts are organized at all points. Also, emergency medical teams are working at all checkpoints. A total of 86 ambulance teams are involved.
