A village for migrants from landslide zone built in north of Chechnya
On the outskirts of the village of Znamenskoye in the Nadterechny District of Chechnya, houses are built for families in need of resettlement from the landslide zone. 54 houses are ready to accommodate people. Meanwhile, more than 4200 people need immediate resettlement.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in September 2018, residents of Chechnya complained about too slow resettlement from landslide zones. The Chechen authorities have promised that the suspended federal programme for the resettlement of people from landslide zones will be resumed from early 2019.
"A new village of 54 private houses, ranging from 100 to 200 square meters, has been built on the outskirts of Znamenskoye. Other 200 houses for families in need of resettlement from the landslide zone are under construction," the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was informed on February 14 by an official from the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities of the Chechen Republic.
In the landslide zone on the territory of Chechnya, there are 65 villages and towns with about 26,000 people living in them. "More than 4200 people need urgent resettlement," notes the official from the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities.
