Governor of Nizhny Novgorod Region Valery Shantsev granted gratitude letters to Civil Defense of France pilots. They helped fighting local fires and dropped over 400 tons of water from their Q 400-MR aircraft.

Homes reconstruction in Verkhnyaya Vereya settlement continues very actively. People are suggested to choose new furniture at lowers prices due to wholesale deals. Authorities also hold negotiations with household devices suppliers.

Crops and cattle

As of today, financial gain and profitability of raising crops are higher than those of 2009. The main task for now is to not lose cattle. The region has enough crops for internal use, but not enough for feeding cattle. Total harvest will make about 570 thousand tons (last year it made 1.5 million tons). 120 thousand tons of crops will be taken from intervention fund to support local farmers.
