Akhmat Kadyrov Regional Social Fund that is headed by the Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov’s mother is going to allocate financial and other assistance to the families of the deceased and those affected by the explosion of the apartment building in Magnitogorsk, reports TASS with reference to Chechnya's press and information minister Jambulat Umarov.
The official says this was ordered by the Republic’s Head Ramzan Kadyrov. Umarov visited hospitals and met the city’s Mayor Sergey Berdnikov and Minister of Social Relations in Chelyabinsk region Tatiana Nikitina.
“We discussed the outline of the upcoming event and the victims’ list. We’re going to make the list and assist on behalf of the Akhmat Kadyrov Regional Social Fund,” he said.
Umarov clarified this is primarily going to be the financial assistance. However, if it is necessary, the families may count on transportation to other regions or countries for treatment.
