MOSCOW, December 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the work to provide housing for people to move from dilapidated housing was inadmissibly slow.
Speaking at the State Council meeting on Monday, the president noted that all residents were planned to move from dilapidated housing by September 1, 2017. The situation in the area is the worst, he said.
The plan for 2013 is only four percent implemented. Only a little more than 1,500 people out of planned 42,000 have moved to new housing, the president told the meeting.
"Dear colleagues, it is just inadmissible. It is not serious work," he said, addressing the participants.
"I want to hear from regions and the government what prevents from normally organizing the work to move from dilapidated housing," the president said.
It is a very sensitive subject for citizens. It is an inadmissible situation when people live in old unfit buildings for decades, Putin noted.
The problem was separately discussed at the conference in Elista, when it was decided to create a system of non-commercial renting. Since then, even a legal basis for this purpose has not been formed, Putin noted.
The president described the problem as the acutest, most painful and chronic for Russia.
