Russia's emergency agency said it was mounting a quick response to a toxic chemical spill flowing downriver from China expected to reach Russia's far-eastern regions early next month. The Emergency Situations Ministry said Monday that the benzine spill from the Nov. 13 chemical plant explosion in Jilin could affect 70 Russian cities and villages with a total of over 1 million residents along the Amur river, including Khabarovsk, a city of 580,000.
