Housing rights of orphaned children

15 January 2016

The first release of ‘Human Rights’ programme in 2016 broadcast on the Public Television of Russia channel (OTR) was dedicated to the provision of housing for the orphaned children.

The issue was raised by Commissioner for Human Rights in Ivanovo Region Natalia Kovaleva. The regional Commissioner provided disappointing statistics on the air: three years ago approximately 1,300 orphaned children were on the housing waiting list, their number increased up to 1,646 in 2014, the figure reached 1,845 in 2015.

A similar situation arose in many other constituent entities. The number of the orphaned children and children left without parental care, who are on the housing waiting list, has not decreased. On the contrary, it is growing in many Russian regions.

The Commissioner is confident that the government should make a specific and practical step in solving the urgent issue, as well as launch the ‘Housing for Orphaned Children’ federal programme.
