KIROV, March 21. /TASS/. A Kirov man has been hiding in a foxhole in a deserted waste site in Kirov, central European Russia, for about four years to avoid paying over a 1.5 million rubles (26,000 US dollars) in alimony and child support, a spokesman for the regional department of Russia’s Federal Bailiff Service said on Tuesday.
"A Kirov resident, born in 1976, has been on the wanted list since 2013. He has been hiding in a dugout, earning his living by scouring for and selling scrap metal. The man’s child support debt to his son and daughter exceeds 1.5 mln rubles," the spokesman said, adding that instead of paying alimony and child support to his children, the man was saving money to buy a car shed to live in.
The individual was detained and placed under administrative arrest for 20 days. Bailiffs request that the court sentence him to a prison term.
