Russian rescuers have begun to clear the rubble in the port of the Lebanese capital, TASS reports. The employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation have already found the bodies of several victims.
Dozens of people come to the checkpoint at the entrance to the destroyed seaport of Beirut every day. The relatives of those who went missing after the explosion hope that their relatives will be found under the rubble.
The Russian rescuers have been allocated a section adjacent to the elevator, which is half destroyed. The rescuers use dogs to help them find victims under the rubble.
The exact number of people who have gone missing is still not known. Doctor Imad Ndjheim expressed hope that the work of the Russian rescuers would be successful. He recalled that they had vast experience in conducting search and rescue operations.
On the first day of work, Russian doctors treated 13 patients in a specially deployed mobile hospital. In addition to providing first aid to victims, doctors tested for coronavirus.
Volunteers from the Youth Wing of the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots are also helping on the site. Young people not only provide first aid to those in need, but also act as translators. The guys call it a unique opportunity to learn from world-class specialists and help in the restoration of the city.
