Konstantin Pulikovsky, presidential envoy in the Far East Federal District of Russia, sent an address to the Russian government asking to allocate at least 1bn rubles (about $34m) for preparing housing and communal facilities of the Kamchatka region for the upcoming winter. According to information from the Vostok-Media agency, municipal authorities of this region own 2bn rubles (about $68m) to energy companies and the latter, in their turn, have no assets for purchasing fuel.
