Kurenkov noted that it may seem that the emergency departments are playing” secondary role” in the CSTO, but this is not the case. “We are well aware that any crisis, whether it be a military operation or a conflict within a state, entails the risk of large-scale man-made and humanitarian disasters that it will be difficult for one state to cope with,” he added. On Thursday, Moscow hosts the 13th meeting of the Coordinating Council for Emergency Situations of the CSTO member states with the participation of the heads of emergency departments Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, Alexander Kurenkov, was elected chairman.
