KBR's authorities ignore appeals of "Volny Aul" villagers

Activists of the "Volny Aul" (Free Village) failed to receive any response from the republic's authorities to requests for help in allocating land plots to those needy, said Svetlana Alieva, the head of an NGO.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on January 28, 26 women in "Volny Aul" came to the Government House. They planned to tell the acting head of Kabardino-Balkaria, Kazbek Kokov, that their families need land plots to improve their living conditions, but were unable to pay for them.

The "Volny Aul" organization sought allocation of land plots to needy residents of Nalchik. In 2017, Aslan Iritov, the head of the organization, was accused of using violence against policemen, while the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) suspected the "Volny Aul" of extremism.

According to Ms Alieva, residents of the village wrote the seventh letter to Kokov asking him to meet them.

According to the authors, they invested their funds to prepare a plot of land of 39 hectares for distribution, but later it was put up for an auction and was granted to the organization "Nalchik for Its Rights", since the villagers were excluded from the auction under a far-fetched pretext.

Residents of the "Volny Aul" ask to transfer to them the land plot of 65 hectares, which has been sold yet.
