«If the accident occurred as a result of the implementation of one of the risks specified in the insurance contract and in provision of all necessary confirming documents by the insuring party, Eurasia Insurance Company is ready to make an insurance payment in the shortest possible time," the company stated.

At present, there is a collection of information and documents on the insured event. Shortly after counting the exact damage, Eurasia will lay a reserve for insurance payments.
