15 Tons of Aid for Fire Victims is Thrown Away…

It seems that some officials in the fire struck regions decided that the aid sent from Siberia was not worth keeping…

This is the best translation of the crime that I can do from multiples of sources…

Following the Ryazan region, where the landfill has been identified humanitarian aid for residents of burned villages, a similar situation occurred in neighboring Mordovia. This is two dump areas that have been discovered of goods that were sent by villages from other areas of Russia.

These dumps contained new and used items…

It turned out that a landfill in Saransk was found with new high-quality leather and fur coats and blue jeans. Things are sorted and packed into boxes and bags into different categories such as: “bedding”, “winter clothes“, “women shoes”. All items were o shipments of goods that were to help the people who lost everything in the summer fires…

Interestingly, some discarded items are preserved with even sales reciept. This was done so people would understand that items were new and not used…

The investigators will conduct an audit and will address the issue of measures of prosecutions for responsible people. According to investigators, the village of Fresh (?), of the Shatsky District, sent the Ryazan region two trucks with humanitarian cargo weighing about 15 tons. It comprised of shoes and clothes were to be distributed among those affected by forest fires. That aid is part of the dumped supplies found…

It seems that one official has already been fired over this. I really find it hard to believe that someone would do this:

An official in the Ryazan region, one of the areas most affected by this summer’s fires, has been fired after it became known that she had dumped humanitarian aid intended for fire victims.

The head of a local social aid center, Svetlana Dardykina, said she had no room to stock the clothes and that most of them were old and not fit for use.

However, locals say many things were brand new and even had checks attached.

Aleksandr Shustin, from the logistics company which delivered the 15-ton cargo from Siberia to the Ryazan region, confirmed this: “We packed the aid ourselves, there was no garbage, no old useless things,” he said.

These people lost everything in these fires and a pair of shoes or a new coat is like the world to these people. These items were sent by people who care and want to help from all over Russia…

Looks like the only useless things I see in this, are officials who do not care about their people that live in their area that they are suppose to be helping…
