On May 18, during a working trip to Kondopoga, Nikolai Tsukanov, the Plenipotentiary Presidential Envoy of Russia in the North-West Federal District, and
Artur Parfenchikov, the acting Head of Karelia, told reporters about the future of 129 apartment buildings, which were recognized as substandard by January 1, 2012,
according to the established procedure, but didn't get into the corresponding program.
This issue was raised by the new Head of the Karelia and discussed at a meeting of the State Commission on Preparations for the 100th anniversary of the Republic in
Moscow on April 25. Nikolai Tsukanov asked the Russian Ministry of Construction to provide Karelia with support and allocate additional funds for the rehousing of
According to the Plenipotentiary, the objects that were not included in the lists due to someone's shortcoming should be included in the current program.
"It seems to me that the Foundation of Assistance to the Housing and Utilities Reform will support the Acting Head of the Republic, the needed money will be found
and the houses will be repaired. In what volume and on what terms is another question. The most important thing is to qualitatively prepare the documentation, plots
of land and everything related to the implementation of this program. People should not suffer from the delinquency of officials," Nikolai Tsukanov emphasized.
The Plenipotentiary noted that by order of the President of Russia the program of resettlement will be continued.
"We need to act faster to process the documents so that the money that is supposed to be spent on the Northwest will not go to other territorial entities,"
Nikolai Tsukanov said.
According to Artur Parfenchikov, now the Government of Karelia determines the final amount of money that the region needs to complete the program to the full
extent, including the setting into operation of 23 thousand square meters of neglected housing.
"It is very important for us that the President announced the extension of the program and the extension of the jurisdiction of the federal fund for 2018.
We still have legal opportunities to get and apply funds as soon as possible," said Artur Parfenchikov.
The Head of Karelia will conduct the work on the expansion of the program jointly with the Plenipotentiary. At the present moment, there is a discussion of the prospects
for changing the format of building: it must be comprehensive, massive and inexpensive, in order to solve a number of social problems at the same time, including provision
of housing to orphans and execution of judgments..
