Citizen E. applied to the Baltic city court with a statement of claim that she was obliged to be provided with a landscaped living quarters that meet the sanitary and technical requirements. The court took the side of the woman. A few months later she was offered a vacant, comfortable two-room apartment, from which the applicant refused. Other living quarters, due to the lack of a free fund, were not offered to her.

In response to the High Commissioner’s statement, the administration of the Kaliningrad Region received information that the budget for 2018 of the city of Baltiysk provides a sum of money for the resettlement of citizens from the emergency housing fund, including the family E. Currently, documentation for the competitive procedures is being prepared.
