MOSCOW, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - Over 262,000 orphans in Russia have not been provided with housing as of the end of 2012, the head of the legal department of the Russian Children’s Ombudsman Office, Irina Vikhrova, told a meeting on Wednesday.
“This data is not full, as officials decline to register those orphaned children in need over some formalities,” in particular, over the lack of all documents, she said.
“Housing is one of the guarantees of the right to life,” Vikhrova said.
She called for amending the legislation to oblige responsible institutions to provide housing to orphans within 6 months.
Vikhrova explained that “the current provisions of the Housing Code envisage no timeframe and make it extendable.”
