  • [01] Russia to send reinforcements against forest fires

    The Russian government will be sending Greece firefighting aircraft as reinforcements on Friday, following a request made by Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.

    According to an announcement by the prime minister's office, Karamanlis called Russian President Vladimir Putin on the telephone at 11:30 on Thursday morning and requested Russia's assistance, asking him to send additional firefighting aircraft to reinforce Greek fire-fighting means.

    Putin contacted the Greek prime minister after a few minutes and informed him that the Russian government will sent operationally available firefighting aircraft on Friday.

    The Greek premier thanked Putin for his rapid response and his country's assistance during a very difficult situation for Greece, due to the large number of forest fires that have started and the unprecedented weather conditions, the announcement said.
