MOSCOW, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry has provided permanent housing to 72,000 of the total 82,000 families of officers that registered as those in need of housing before January 1, 2012, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Monday during a conference call at the ministry.
“We had to make a full inventory (of those in need of permanent housing) and, unfortunately, the figure has turned out to be somewhat higher than it had been as of the beginning of last year: it turned out that there are 82,000 of those who had been registered before January 1, 2012,” he said.
Shoigu noted that 72,000 officers from this category had been provided with permanent housing and another 6,000 officers had been offered flats in various Russian regions.
“This year we will fully provide with permanent housing all those who had been registered before January 1, 2012,” the minister promised.
He added that some “exotic cases” had occurred in the process of the provision of dwelling place to the families of officers. “We had to move some officers to flats allocated to them through court enforcement officers. It seems unthinkable,” he said.
