Information on the search operations of missing mountaineers in the territory of Guba district
The search and rescue operations are conducted in highland massif (at an altitude of 2500-3000 meters above sea level) with a complex relief and in severe meteorological conditions by the appropriate rescue forces of the Ministry of Emergency Situations and employees of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources. On the last days weather conditions have worsened and it has snowed. Because of intensive snow the probability of avalanche has increased. Under these conditions implementation of searching and rescuing and other urgent operations has got more difficult. Taking these circumstances into consideration search and rescue operations are implemented restrictedly (providing safety of rescuers), but uninterruptedly.
Ministry of Emergency Situations states regretfully that although news about the operations are regularly provided, operation conditions are complicated and specially the situation is sensitive, some news portals are spreading untrue reports and specially alleged information about the activities of the state organizations participating in the operations.
Ministry of Emergency Situations once more recalls mass media, representatives of society, users of social networks not to use unofficial and unspecified information, to be attentive in spreading subjective opinions of the people having no outright acquaintance with the situations on the spot and recommends the people spreading such information to approach this sensitive situation with understanding.
