President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Good afternoon, colleagues.
We have scheduled today to discuss issues related to so-called social gas supply. You will remember that in April 2021 we spoke about it and discussed it, after which we made certain plans. Let us review how this work is progressing today.
But before that I would like to speak on current issues. I want to start with battling the wildfires in different regions of the country. I know that Dmitry Grigorenko visited the sites alongside his colleagues and had a look. In some places the situation is changing, and it is generally changing for the better. However, new issues have emerged that require special attention.
