Moscow: Ryazan resident demands meeting with head of Ministry of Construction threatening to set himself on fire
The man wanted to achieve the abolishment of the ban on building a house.
The Moscow police detained a native of the Ryazan Region, who in the morning came to the building of the Ministry of Construction, poured gasoline on himself, took a cigarette lighter and threatened to set himself on fire if the head of the ministry, Vladimir Yakushev, did not come to him. As it turned out later, the father of three children wanted to achieve the abolition of the ban on the construction of a house in the security zone of the Yesenin places.
Deputy Minister Yuri Gordeyev took the desperate man into the building of the Ministry of Construction. After talking with the officials, the man was taken to the police department. Investigative actions are conducted in relation to the detainee.
According to a Telegram channel, the man’s name is Abdusalam Zalbegov, he is 31 years old. As his wife tells, their family received a land plot in the village of Poschupovo. After completing the documents, the spouses learned that the land was in a protected zone where nothing could be built.
Many other families of the Ryazan Region, as well as large agricultural enterprises, experienced similar difficulties. According to Komsomolskaya Pravda, the ban on construction in Yesenin places practically paralyzed the lives of almost 40 villages, whose residents were forbidden not only to build anything, but also to repair, as well as to set up infrastructure to the houses.
The protected zone included 47.5 thousand hectares of land, which was identified in 2015, after the appearance of a cultural heritage site of federal significance “Yeseninskaya Rus, a place associated with the life and work of poet S.А. Yesenin.” Construction bans were introduced in 2017 on the recommendation of the Ministry of Culture.
