MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) - The bill on the 2014 federal budget should be amended before the end of the year fully to finance housing construction and repair in the flood-hit regions of the Far East, Igor Sluynyayev, the minister of regional development of the Russian Federation, told on Thursday the Government Commission on Flood Relief in the Far East.
“I would like to note that the funds allocated for the federal targeted housing programme are not enough for housing restoration, repair and construction, meeting only a third of the of the requirements,” the minister said. He said that the 2014 federal budget should be amended to finance housing restoration in full volume.
Slyunyayev recalled that the government decree specifying expenditure provisions of the federal targeted housing programme was signed on October 12, which permitted advance payments for housing construction and repair to a sum of 4.57 billion roubles. Out of this sum, 280 million roubles, or 9 percent of the total required sum, was remitted to the Khabarovsk territory, 150 million roubles (17 percent) to the Amur region, 37.8 million roubles (100 percent) to the Magadan region and 137.5 million roubles (31 percent) to the Jewish Autonomous district.
