Putin ordered Prosecutor General’s Office to check compliance with overhaul program
Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Prosecutor General's Office to inspect and find out whether the formation of overhaul programs in subjects of the Russian Federation complies with applicable legislation.
The Prosecutor General's Office is to complete the required security checks by October 1, 2017.
Inspection objectives, as outlined in the document establishing the timing of President’s orders, are as follows: compliance verification of housing legislation standards in the formation of regional programs of the common property overhaul in apartment buildings.
This also applies to multi-unit apartment buildings with a high degree of physical wear and tear, as well as to the buildings, which are the objects of cultural heritage.
Head of the Russian Federation also expressed his demand regarding the need to improve the legal regulation of these programs. According to Vladimir Putin, the country needs to establish a methodology for calculating the cost of major repairs and financial evaluation of regional systems.
President of Russia suggested that the Russian government empowered one of the ministries with relevant authority. Governors received similar orders related to the verification and calculation.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
Last year's wave of governors' resignations, which temporary termination was announced in November 2017 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, will resume soon after March 18. The CrimeRussia figures out who will lose governor's seat.
