In Sevastopol veteran of the Great Patriotic War obtained long-awaited accommodation

11 May 2017

In March, Commissioner for Human Rights in Sevastopol Pavel Butsai received an application from veteran of the Great Patriotic War K. Therein it was stated, for several years the applicant had been refused resident registration with the right to priority access to housing.

To restore his rights K. had applied to court. The court had found the authorities’ refusal illegal. However, after the procedure no solution of the problem, accordingly, no provision of accommodation had followed.

During the submission of the application it was found that not the veteran himself but his legal representative by power of attorney had been registered. As a result of the measures taken, in October 2016 the problem was eliminated. Although, according to K., the late registration left no chance to obtain accommodation in the near future.

Having scrutinized the situation, Pavel Butsai took personal charge of the application. In particular, to find out possible ways of provision of housing as soon as possible the Commissioner hold several meeting with the leadership of the government of Sevastopol.

On May 7, with the assistance of the Commissioner the veteran obtained ownership of a suitable dwelling — a great gift on the threshold of Victory Day.

K. asked to convey his thanks to High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova for her sensitivity to veterans.
