Putin signs decree on material assistance to Krasnodar flood victims

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on measures to deal with the aftermath of the July 6-7, 2012, flood in the Krasnodar territory, which envisions, in particular, that the federal government will allocate 1 million rubles to each family of those who were killed by the disaster, the Kremlin press service has reported.

The Krasnodar territorial administration is also supposed to provide each such family with 1 million rubles, it said.

The federal government has also been tasked with paying 100,000 rubles to each resident of the populated areas stricken by the flood until July 23, 2012 if their property was lost partly or totally.

The Krasnodar territorial administration has been tasked with paying such people 60,000 rubles from the local budget on the same terms.

Putin has also instructed the Investigative Committee to analyze what officials in the Krasnodar territory did to prevent the loss of life during the July 6-7, 2012 flood, to inform the people about the danger and to deal with its aftermath.


"In the course of the investigation, attach special significance to analysis of the reasons that led to massive loss of life because of the flood, in order to prevent this in the future," the Kremlin press service reported quoting the presidential decree.
