In Ekaterinburg, a well-known development company Atomstroykompleks is going to demolish private houses for the sake of development of residential complexes. Meanwhile, the owners have all the documents confirming their property rights. It should be noted that large families with children have been living in these houses for many years. People continue to struggle for their homes. But the authorities cannot give them a satisfying response.
Ilya, houseowner: 6 years ago I built it myself. My whole family lives here. I have three children under age. I built it in full compliance with all the municipal building regulations. I have registered the properly correctly.
290 and 180 square meters. 2 houses.
Mikhail Volkov, Minister of Construction and Infrastructure Development of Sverdlovsk Region: "The vector of development of this territory has already been chosen; sooner or later it will be taken up with multi-family residential housing anyway. If this is outlined in municipal city development documents, then it will be so".
Note that this is happening in the largest country in the world, where there is still much undeveloped land.
