Sergei Mitrokhin: "Vladimir Putin's promise to evacuate residents from the flooding area in Krymsk has remained unfulfilled"

Press Release

August 26, 2012

On August 25, YABLOKO leader Sergei Mitrokhin held a series of meetings with the residents of Krymsk area which suffered a terrible flood in July.

The meetings had to identify the cases of non-fulfillment by the authorities of their obligations to the residents who lost their property in the flood.

People reported red tape in getting compensation for lost property and money for repairs, continuous losing by officials of their documents submitted in order to get a compensation and small size of compensations insufficient for repairs. The residents resented such bureaucratic formalism when people were denied compensation.

Also a large number of houses in Krymsk were officially recognised to be situated in the flooding zone, and President Putin promised to move the residents to a safer area. Instead of implementing this promise local authorities offered homeowners to conduct repairs of their houses and refused to move them to other areas.

The police tried to debar Mitrokhin from meeting the residents. Also several cars with representatives of local administration followed YABLOKO leader at the meetings. At the end Mitrokhin managed to make the local officials cooperate in the solution of the problems of the Krymsk residents.

Typical walls of the houses people have to live in.


A handicapped man and his old age mother have to live in a cold terrace constructed for a sumer period.

Typical basements.
