Mikhail Kasyanov orders Russian civil defence to cope with new tasks

The Russian civil-defence organisation is now functioning as planned; however, new threats call for discarding traditional methods and searching for new solutions. This was disclosed here today by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov, as he addressed a national conference involving regional civil-defence chiefs.

According to the Prime Minister, such work should encompass two aspects. On the one hand, we must train civil-defence units, ensuring their material-technical support all the same. On the other hand, though, we should streamline interaction between all institutions of state authority in accomplishing civil-defence objectives. We've got to train administrators, also explaining civil-defence issues to the population. Emergency humanitarian relief aid, as well as that in war-time, are closely linked with this aspect, Kasyanov added.

The latest international events show that any state's ability to defend its citizens is a basic pre-condition of society's sustainable development, Kasyanov stressed. In his opinion, the present-day conference is, in fact, an augmented Cabinet session dealing with civil-defence issues; among other things, this session stipulates a trip to civil-defence installations. Civil-defence issues have never been discussed in this format before, Kasyanov noted, suggesting that such conferences be organised at least once a year.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
