The decision to induce a temporary ferry crossing was made after the relevant appeal of the governor of the Saratov region
Valeria Radaeva in the military department.
Currently, the main bridge, 170 m in length, is being built across the Kamelik River. To ensure the crossing of the local population, a dam and a temporary reinforced concrete bridge were built a year ago, which, due to floods, also ended up under water- said in a statement.
It is noted that the units of the pontoon reconnaissance battalion today launched the 600 kilometer march from Bashkiria to the village of Bolshaya Tarasovka, where a temporary ferry will be built on the river. Earlier, military engineers conducted a reconnaissance here.
