Requirements for the resettlement of emergency housing are planned to be tightened in Russia. By the end of the year, the relevant bill should be submitted to the State Duma for consideration.
The deputies expect to oblige the authorities of the region to raise prices for the purchase of housing for migrants. According to Vladimir Koshelev, First Deputy Head of the State Duma Committee on Construction and Housing and Public Utilities, many municipalities make the cost 20% lower than that set by the Ministry of Construction, they write “News”.
“Today, egregious cases have become more frequent in many regions, when houses recognized as emergency are resettled unevenly. Some residents are relocated to new apartments, while others remain in dilapidated buildings,” the deputy added.
According to the bill, it will be forbidden to stretch the process of resettlement of emergency housing. For violation of the rules, it is proposed to introduce punishment.
The importance of resettling citizens living in unsuitable conditions was stressed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. So far, about three million families have been able to move into new homes.
