Spetsstroy actively reconstructs state country houses in Crimea in ‘emergency mode’
Multimillion state construction contracts of saunas, pools, steam rooms are concluded with unique supplier without tender.
The Federal State Unitary Enterprise GUSST No. 4 of Federal Agency for Special Construction together with the Federal Security Guard Service is actively engaged in restoration of the state dachas in the Crimea near Foros (settlement of city type).
As Fontanka writes, multimillion state contracts are distributed without tender as in state procurements it is specified that tender concluded in the emergency mode. According to the law, it is possible to carry out purchases at the unique supplier “owing to accident, other emergency situations of natural or technogenic nature, force majeure, in need of urgent medical intervention, and also for prevention of threat of emergence of the specified situations”. What exactly caused the emergency mode in Yalta is not specified in the tender documentation, but multimillion contracts are distributed to “known” firms on arrangement of the state dachas.
The construction of state dachas in the Crimea began in the 1950th years. In only two years (from the 1956th to 1958th), six two-storeyed buildings in style of the Livadia palace were built. They were constructed of a shell rock and revetted with a snow-white inkermansky stone. Zarya in Foros (No.11) became the last Soviet country house. There were athletic fields, a red tile roof and even the escalator to the sea. Exactly there Mikhail Gorbachev was kept during the putsch. For every country house the commandant's office with the certain commandant and a platoon of protection from 20 to 40 people was organized. In 2014 the authorities of the Crimea nationalized state dachas of Ukrainian and Soviet leaders and transferred these objects to free use to the Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation.

The price of the contract is 90 million rubles. LLC ITTs Akvastroy will perform works.

Yet another scandal involving Boris Dubrovsky is looming in the Chelyabinsk region. The Governor is determined to resettle Uraim and Severny Klyuch villages against the will of their residents. Kolyma Governor Sergei Nosov suggested Dubrovsky to drive the people into bright future with iron hands. In fact, the future is bright mostly for Nosov and Dubrovsky – not for the resettled villagers.
