– As soon as we received a request from the leadership of the Republic of Buryatia, they immediately responded, prepared and sent equipment. Already in the place it will be clear where exactly it will intervene: in the restoration of a dam or a railway line. We hope that the consequences of the emergency will be eliminated as soon as possible – said the general director of INK, Yakov Ginzburg.
The regional emergency regime has been in force in Buryatia since August 20. A day earlier, due to abnormal rains and a ruptured protection dam in the North Baikal region, the Kholodnaya River overflowed its banks, washing away the bridge and the adjacent railway embankment on the Nizhneangarsk – Kholodnaya section. As a result, a 1,000 meter long tarpaulin was damaged. The movement of trains in the place is stopped.
