MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) - A total of 2,480 out of 14,781 houses that found themselves in a flood zone in the Far East are beyond repair and uninhabitable, Russian president’s envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev told a session of the government commission dealing with the aftermath of major floods in Russia’s Far East.
According to the envoy, the housing facilities had been inspected fully and in time. A total of 5,677 facilities were reparable, he said. Trutnev also asked the participants in the session to control whether all the affected people were being informed about the results of the inspection.
“I want to hear why many citizens don’t know about the results of the inspection, don’t know whether they will get new housing or their houses and apartments will be repaired,” Trutnev said. “Meanwhile the aim of the inspection was to clarify the situation for the people as to where they would live,” he added.
