MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Defense Ministry has distributed more than 41 apartments among servicemen from its housing waiting list, Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov told journalists on Wednesday after the government’s Q & A session at the Russian State Duma.
“I told the deputies about the situation in the social sphere and how we are providing servicemen with housing,” the minister emphasized.
“You know, there were more than 54,000 people on our waiting list early this year. We have distributed more than 41,000 flats by now,” Serdyukov added.
Serdyukov had a working meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on September 21.
“At present, we have already provided 33,000 people on the waiting list: we are providing and registering 1,500-1,650 apartments a week. We will have 21,000 apartments left by year’s end. We are going to distribute 20,000 of these apartments by year’s end under contracts that we have signed,” Serdyukov explained.
“Anyway, our task is to liquidate the entire queue, including the one that’s existing now and will appear this year, before the first half of 2013. Then, we will fully fulfill your task to switch over to scheduled provision of servicemen with housing. We are supposed to complete this work at the turn of 2012-2013.
