Day of the rescuer of Russia and the anniversary of the Ministry of Emergency Situations

Every year December 27 in Russia celebrates the Day of the rescuer. This holiday date appeared in the calendar in 1995 year, and therefore we can assume that the holiday today has its own anniversary - 20 anniversary. 26 December 1995 was signed by presidential decree number 1306, the official name of which is “On the establishment of the Day of Rescuer of the Russian Federation”. But if the decree was signed on December 26, then why was the 27 number chosen as the date of the holiday? The fact is that it was 27 in December, but only in 1990, a rescue corps appeared in our country, which became the prototype of the future MES. The full name of the modern department sounds like the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters. To the ministry - 25!

Day of the rescuer of Russia and the anniversary of the Ministry of Emergency Situations

The Ministry of Emergency Situations, by the way, is a unique department within the Russian government, not only because it accumulates the forces and means to prevent or eliminate the consequences of disasters and accidents, but also because history his existence, the change of minister in him occurred only once. 21 May 2012 took over the post Vladimir Puchkov, who replaced Sergey Shoigu as Minister of Emergency Situations (if you do not take into account the short period spent by the Acting Minister Ruslan Tsalikov, who today holds the post of 1-th Deputy Defense Minister of the Russian Federation).

During the years of its existence, first the rescue corps, and then the ministries, Russian rescuers took part in thousands of operations not only in Russia, but also in a number of other countries of the world.

In 2011, Russian specialists went to Japan to participate in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake of magnitude 9 points. As it is known, the Japanese islands (the northeast coast) were covered by a wave of a giant tsunami, which literally splintered the infrastructure and residential buildings. Rescuers EMERCOM of the Russian Federation then helped the Japanese colleagues to get people out from under the wreckage of structures, to dismantle debris, monitor territories in search of injured persons caught in water captivity in the flooded areas.

Thanks to the work of Russian specialists, it was possible to provide the necessary assistance to hundreds of people to restore the operation of the power supply system, which allowed to intensify the course of the entire rescue operation in the north-east of Japan, which was affected by the earthquake and tsunami also with the threat of radioactive contamination of the area. Russian rescuers then worked in truly extreme conditions: at night the temperature fell below -10 Celsius, the flooded structures and fragments of buildings under which people were frozen, they had to take emergency measures to save the victims. And today Japan is introducing economic sanctions against Russia. Such a specific "gratitude" from the Land of the Rising Sun ...

In August, 1999, the EMERCOM of Russia staff went to help the Turks in the process of eliminating the effects of an earthquake near the coast of the Sea of ​​Marmara. Then, Russian specialists from the rubble of buildings in Izmit and Adapazar extracted 72 living people - as many as all the international rescue teams working in the earthquake eradication zone, taken together. Rescuers EMERCOM of Russia took part in extinguishing a fire at a petrochemical complex in Izmit. The fire was caused by an earthquake and could initiate explosions of tanks with liquefied hydrocarbons.

What about today? And today, the petrochemical complexes of Turkey are delivering oil purchased for a song from the IG militants, and the Turkish fighters bring down the Russian Su-24M, whose crew carried out the counter-terrorism mission in Syria. This is also a kind of "gratitude", but already from the Turkish leadership and those forces who decided that good should not be answered with good.

Russian rescuers participated in operations in Colombia, Haiti, Spain, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Indonesia, Pakistan, China and other countries.

In 2005, more than 60 tons of relief aid were delivered to the United States by emergency ministry aircraft for needy US citizens affected by the rampant hurricane Katrina. And today the United States itself is sending "humanitarian" aid ... But only in the form weapons, ammunition, ammunition and communications equipment to the militants of the Ukrainian Nazi battalions, so that they continue the punitive operation against the population of Donbass. Today, the United States is sending “humanitarian aid” to militants in Syria and Iraq, who are called the “free army” or “moderate opposition” - so moderate that “oppositionists”, having received arms and ammunition from overseas partners, decide that the destruction of cities, the theft of oil, the killing of thousands of civilians in the same Syria - “normal things”, if the owner so desires.

Russian rescuers conducted a large number of rescue operations, the results of which were hundreds of thousands of lives saved. To understand the scope of the work, it is worth presenting data for the current year:

rescued on fires - 79898, rescued on water - 1942, rescued by road accidents - 54172.

Over the 2015 year, EMERCOM employees delivered to the needy more than 51,5 tons of humanitarian supplies to the Russian regions, as well as to the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics.

From the list of activities of Russian rescuers for the current - anniversary year for the Emergencies Ministry:

search operation in Indonesia,

eliminating the consequences of a fire in the library building of the Russian Academy of Sciences,

rescue work as a result of the separation of ice floes with fishermen in the Sakhalin region,

eliminating the consequences of a fire in the Admiral shopping complex in the Republic of Tatarstan,

search and rescue operation in Nepal.

This is truly valiant work, and the Russian rescuers themselves are professionals of the highest level in their difficult but so necessary work.

“Military Review” thanks the Russian rescuers for their daily work and congratulates you on the holiday, and the Emergencies Ministry in general - on the 25 anniversary!

        With the Ministry of Emergencies began the revival of Russia! I’m pathetic, but I think Shoigu agrees with me .. On the occasion, the peasants of all!

          In fact, the USSR Civil Defense was formed on October 4, 1932. And Shoigu has nothing to do with its creation. And if you take a ready-made, slightly change it and rename it, this does not mean "create a new one".
          Therefore, the civil defense system is not 25 years old, but recently turned 83 years old.
          And the Ministry may be 25 years old. And the chief of staff of the GO since then began to proudly be called the minister. But who should be interested in this?

            Congratulations to the rescuers on the holiday! But Putin needs to pay attention to why they are not paid their salaries, for December and next January, they say the crisis, but the top authorities accorded themselves premiums and, instead of the salary, the Ministry of Emergencies offers a loan!
            The Perm Krai prosecutor’s office checks information on issuing credit cards to EMERCOM employees instead of salaries. Executives offered to issue credit cards to rescuers so that subordinates had something to celebrate the New Year in case of salary non-payment. According to media reports, a similar situation arose in at least six other regions. The Rostrud noted that such proposals are contrary to the law. The head of the Ministry of Emergencies, Vladimir Puchkov, said that he was keeping the situation under control, and admitted that in the regions "individual leaders" allowed "overpayments of bonuses and other payments to the management team."
            According to the Dozhd TV channel, in the Kaluga region, rescuers are offered to take a loan from Sberbank. Especially for this, managers invite bank specialists to the classes at the Ministry of Emergencies, who talk about lending conditions. Also, according to "Rain", delayed salary payments to rescuers in the Tomsk region. An employee of the regional Ministry of Emergency Situations told Dozhd that last month they paid only half, and this month they promised 25% of the salary, but so far this has not come.

            In the Arkhangelsk region, EMERCOM employees were simply informed that they may not receive money by the New Year.

            After the scandal erupted, the situation with salaries was forced to comment on by the head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, Vladimir Puchkov. At a conference call, he said that leaders guilty of delays in salaries have already been punished, RIA Novosti reports. “Each chief of the headquarters is personally responsible for this. Where "nakosyachili", meet with the local population, solve this issue.
            It's a shame, these people save their lives every day!

            You need to bring 1000 Kalash on time and who needs it!) Foreign trips of our rescuers are noble missions, no one argues, but the constant patching of holes on the territory of Russia is depressing. And instead of giving a penny, we give orders for the next heroic extinguishing of forest fires or peat bogs. And who prevents them from adopting (or how they like to "create" like the Ministry of Emergency Situations itself on the basis of the State Emergency Situations Ministry, as it was rightly noted here), a set of measures aimed at prevention, to revive those institutions that were in the USSR, if there are no own thoughts (forestry work, etc.) Or is it more expensive than permanent damage? If the forest is privately owned, then laws are needed that oblige the private trader to comply with a fire-prevention set of measures. I don’t know, our Ministry of Emergency Situations does not impress me - there are individual feats of rescuers and they should be treated with due respect and respect, but the feat is a consequence of someone's mistake.

                here is another field for the work of the Ministry of Emergency Situations - there are few other problems in the country:) - According to the TASS news agency, the famous actor and director Nikolai Burlyaev plans to create a film studio of the Ministry of Emergencies.

                He announced his plans at a round table discussion “Dialogue between the writer and the era” in the Publishing Council of the Russian Orthodox Church.
                Nikolai Burlyaev: “We will create a film studio of the Ministry of Emergencies and make films about modern heroes. We will create our own television and deal with literature. ”

                Recently, Burlyaev holds the position of director of the Institute of Culture of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia.

            This question is also not very clear to me. Before the Ministry of Emergencies, there was no one to save us. The name also kills me. If there is an Emergencies Ministry, then there must be a Ministry for the Prevention of Emergencies. It turns out that we are constantly eliminating something and preventing nothing. This is not a stone in the Ministry of Emergencies. So, think out loud.

      Your Majesty! You apparently never had to save passengers from a ship stranded during a storm, when hefty peasants who screeched in fear climb into a life raft over the heads of women, children, and the elderly. Or to force the inadequate captain of the wrecked vessel to rescue actions. After all, to say that a rescue operation is quite a stressful situation is to say very little. That's why the rescuer, in addition to the rescue training, must have heavy fists, and preferably firearms, and, in large-scale operations, special units.

      All who served in the ACC, MSS, UPASR Navy with a HOLIDAY!

        You apparently never had to save passengers from a ship stranded during a storm, when hefty men who scowled in fear climb into a life raft over the heads of women, children, old people
        And can you name at least one rescue operation of the EMERCOM of Russia, where they "dealt" with such situations with weapons? do not make me laugh. The most that came to the driver's mind, Shoigu, was to yell at a swearing man in Moscow traffic jams that he would shoot someone's head (he must have shot his own while rescuing someone))) and nothing - they were quietly transferred to another boss.

          I will not say for the Ministry of Emergency Situations, but for the Navy’s MSS - 22 on February 1990 of the year, Avachinskaya Bay, the MK-3 passenger boat during an storm squeezes ice onto a rock. Onboard 96 passengers. Result: passengers were evacuated aboard a rescue vessel, the boat was stranded, towed to the place of permanent basing, during the evacuation of one passenger - a journalist of a local television company, his jaw was broken (he wanted to + panic before everyone else). He did not appeal to the court for rescuers.
