MOSCOW, February 13 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed to extend free public housing privatization for two more years, the president’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told Rossiya 24 TV Channel on Wednesday.
“The president believes that taking into consideration social significance of this problem it is necessary to raise the issue of prolonging public housing privatization for all categories of citizens for two more years,” he said.
“Therefore we proceed from the assumption that this issue will be studied in this manner, which will allow those categories of citizens, who failed to do this in time, to privatize their flats free of charge, although to be fair it’s worth noting that there was enough time to complete all privatization procedures,” Peskov said.
He noted that the issue of free public housing privatization “is very sensitive and concerns a great number of citizens.” The expiry date of free privatization is March 1.
This issue had been repeatedly discussed at meetings with the president, Peskov said.
