More than 80 million Russians already covered by the alert system in case of large-scale emergencies, said the head EMERCOM of Russia Vladimir Puchkov.

«The EMERCOM of Russia together with the regions continues to develop the all-Russian complex system of informing the population. Already more than 80 million people receive all the necessary information. We are continuing to develop the system of informing and warning,» said he, speaking in the state Duma of the Russian Federation.
