On 26 June, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Sverdlovsk Region Tatiana Merzlyakova presented a special report on the resettlement of citizens from the emergency housing stock and the protection of their rights to the head of the region Evgeny Kuyvashev.
During the meeting, Tatiana Merzlyakova informed Evgeny Kuyvashev that the implementation of the resettlement program is controlled not only by the supervisory authorities but also by human rights organizations.
"Today, I have no doubt that the program aimed at the elimination of the emergency housing fund, recognized as such by January 2012, will be fully implemented this year. There are problem areas, but a timely solution can be found on all issues," the regional Commissioner said.
According to Tatiana Merzlyakova, the quality of the houses built for the resettlement of the Ural residents is under special control. In particular, the number of complaints on this topic has significantly decreased over the past two years.
In turn, Evgeny Kuyvashev said that the administration of the region will continue monitoring the program of resettlement from emergency housing. According to the head of the region, the territories that have quickly and qualitatively overcome the first step, will receive additional help in the first place.
The parties also discussed the lack of requests for resettlement from emergency housing from a number of municipalities, the qualitative examination of the housing stock and the timely exclusion of homes with a high wear factor from capital repair programs.
As a result of the meeting, the regional Commissioner noted that she managed to voice the entire range of problems related to resettlement from emergency housing to the head of the region. According to Tatiana Merzlyakova, thanks to the renovation program, the Ural citizens are able to significantly improve their living conditions.
