More than 570 thousand people celebrated the inauguration of their new apartments. The dilapidated houses that are planned to be relocated in a few years will be able to be vacated already next year, which will allow us to start a new program designed until 2030. Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Marat Khusnullin recalled at the forum-exhibition “Russia” that buildings declared unfit for habitation between 2017 and 2022 will be included. In the regions this news was received with optimism. Despite the major renovation of apartment buildings, which began with the most deteriorated buildings so that they would not enter the emergency list, a significant number of people are still subject to resettlement. Some live in two-story buildings, colloquially called barracks, others live in former dormitories, where major renovations are expensive and will not improve living conditions, and they also crowd into high-rise buildings that, although built several decades ago, They were either built fragile or used without proper care and timely repairs. One way or another, emergency housing as a phenomenon continues to exist, despite modern technologies to carry out major repairs and protect buildings from premature destruction.
The head of the region, Viacheslav Gladkov, discussed the process of resettlement of emergency housing in the Belgorod region with the Minister of Construction, Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation, Irek Fayzullin, and the Chairman of the Territorial Board of Trustees. Development Fund, Sergei Stepashin, as part of his working visit to the border region.
– One of the main topics of discussion is the results of the implementation of measures in the Belgorod region to resettle citizens from the emergency housing stock. Thus, since 2019, 2,781 people and 1,154 homes have been resettled in the territory of 12 municipalities. In 2024, 427 people and 199 homes are planned to be relocated, Viacheslav Gladkov said.
In the Oryol region, the resettlement program is also ahead of schedule: residents of 137 dilapidated houses celebrated its opening almost two years ahead of schedule. However, as the regional government noted, despite this, the process continues to accelerate: the region received more than an additional billion rubles from the federal budget for the implementation of a major program. It should be noted that the relocation of emergency housing is not limited only to the regional capital. Residents of the cities of Livny, Mtsensk and Maloarkhangelsk will receive new apartments. The operational works allow the inhabitants of Orël to fulfill the resettlement plan of emergency buildings recognized as such before 2017, but now aim to provide accommodation in the same coordinated way to those displaced from those houses that were later granted the status of emergency.

And in the Lipetsk region, where the program is implemented two years ahead of schedule, over the past five years more than seven thousand residents have received new apartments. The program is being implemented in nine municipalities.
A striking example is the city of Lebedyan. Owners of new apartments prefer not to remember their previous living conditions, because now they have cozy housing with all the amenities and often even with a larger area than the previous one. In Lipetsk, construction works are underway in the LTZ microdistrict, where three houses will be provided to the displaced, and two more in the Vzletny microdistrict. At the same time, both in Lipetsk and in regional centers, developers take care of comfortable courtyard spaces, and officials take care of social infrastructure. It’s no secret that shabby and dilapidated housing is often located far from modern parks and squares, and the surrounding landscape leaves much to be desired. Therefore, in Lipetsk they focus not only on the comfort of the apartments. The regional government announced the construction of schools, kindergartens and other institutions necessary for people within a short distance. In Lebedyan, the infrastructure for the displaced has already been built: a house was planned for them, taking into account the proximity to the educational center, the clinic, the House of Culture and the stadium.
