Building of a new apartment building for 40 Debaltsevo families, whose houses were damaged or destroyed in combat, are finished. On November 2nd, the Head of Donetsk People’s Republic Aleksandr Zakharchenko checked the readiness of the first apartment building built as a part of the state funding program.
“The building is ready for housing residents. It is a nice dwelling, and, I hope, that we will continue such projects and will be able to provide all the willing families with apartments,” Zakharchenko said after examining the apartments.
A five-storey building is situated in Vostochny micro district. 40 apartments, 22 two-room apartments and 18 one-room apartments, are ready for housing people. The building was initially being constructed as a part of the project to create “temporary” housing. The families were supposed to reside here temporarily until their homes destroyed in the combats would be restored.
“I talked to my colleagues, and we decided to turn this housing into permanent in response to the request of local authorities,” the Head of the Republic stressed.
The redesigning and renovation of the building took around 5 months. The municipality (of Debaltsevo – Editor) will arrange the transfer of the ownership of the apartments to the new residents.
The apartments of the new building are equipped with everything one needs for a normal life. The rooms are refurbished, with plastic windows and batteries installed. Kitchens and bathrooms are equipped with electric stoves, boilers, plumbing fixtures. The house is provided with all necessary supply lines.
The Deputy Chairman of the DPR Council of the Ministers Dmitriy Trapeznikov, the Head of the Ministry of Construction Sergey Naumets, mayor of Debaltsevo Aleksandr Reyngolts and others also took part in the inspection.
It was earlier reported that temporary housing for families left without homes because of the war will be built in six towns of the Republic. As priority, DPR authorities launched the arrangement of the temporary housing in Gorlovka, Debaltsevo cities and Yunokommunarovsk town near Enakievo. In the first stage of the project, accommodation of 90 families is planned.
