Russia allocates $500,000 to restore Vanuatu's infrastructure

The Russian authorities have allocated Vanuatu $500,000 for recovery, after cyclone Pam had devastated the islands in March.

Sergey Konounchenko, Russia's deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations provided corresponding donor agreement on 17 September.

Odo Tevi, Vanuatu ambassador to the United Nations said that the most important is to restore economy now, and to have solid infrastructure.

According to the data of the Vanuatu's government, cyclone Pam, which hit the island nation in the Southern part of the Pacific Ocean, destroyed up to 90% of buildings in the Republic, as well as the whole harvest. 75,000 people lost their homes.

Pravda.Ru reported that Baldwin Lonsdale, President of Vanuatu, claimed that mainly climate change caused the cyclone. Over 10,000 residents have been evacuated.
