Chechen authorities announce housing construction in Galanchozh District

The Chechen authorities promise to pay 1-3 million roubles to those residents of Chechnya, who are ready to move to the Galanchozh District and run their households there.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Chechen authorities announced plans to restore the Galanchozh District in late 2018. The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, promised to create "conditions for living, leisure and attraction of tourists" in the territories bordering on Ingushetia and announced the Year of the Galanchozh District in the republic.

On February 11, an official from the Chechnya's Ministry of Territorial, Economic Development and Trade told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that roads are actively being built in the Galanchozh District.

"The works should be completed by March; then, the main restoration stage will begin in the district. First of all, in the village of Galanchozh, which is the administrative centre, the buildings of the administration and hospitals will be built. Besides, at this stage, it is planned to start restoration works in several dwelling settlements, as well as to build 80 houses for the natives of the district, who want to return to their homeland," said the source, adding that agriculture and tourism will be the main development directions of the Galanchozh District.

"Those local residents who are ready to resettle and start their household economies there, will be allocated cash grants in the amount of from one to three million roubles," the ministry source has explained.
