The major problems were poor social support personnel, shortage and obsolescence of fire equipment.
“The Ministry there is a false opinion about a fairly prosperous situation with staffing of on-duty guard — about 90 percent”, — noted in the report, Azucena. This figure was achieved through drastic cuts in staffing levels, without taking into account important standards. For example, a crew on a fire truck is three instead of the required six.

Instead, the program has included the purchase of two thousand drones for a total of almost half a billion rubles, which needs just 88 pieces.
In addition, the state order found 1360 tankers, the cost of which is twice the former, and totaled 24 billion rubles.
The provision of medical care to firefighters because of underfunding meanwhile, fell by 70 percent. The staff of the Ministry has practically ceased to provide housing.
