15 December 2017

Commissioner for Human Rights in the Irkutsk Region Valeriy Lukin received an appeal from Citizen S. who complained about the eviction from the accommodation which she and her grandmother moved into in 2011 with the agreement of the Irkutsk administration, but without the necessary documents. At that time they occupied the controversial residential premises as fire victims: in 2003 their house burned down, and in 2004 the family was given only a room as a temporary living place. However, in 2017 the Irkutsk administration put forward a demand to S. and her family for eviction from the occupied apartment without providing other housing.
