Every region within Russia will have its own UAV department to conduct rescue operations, the Emergency Situations Minister announced.

“Special branches that will be equipped with unmanned aerial vehicles and other necessary robotic systems will be set up in all regions. We plan to make very active use of all robotic technology, including drones,” Vladimir Puchkov told journalists during a working trip to the city of Yekaterinburg.

According to Moscow Times Puchkov said the UAVs would be used in search and rescue operations. The ministry also plans to set up centers providing service horses and dogs in every region of the country, he said. “Today we are presenting the first horse to such a center in Yekaterinburg,” Puchkov said, adding that the center would eventually house five horses.
