Mikhail Menn has given data on the resettlement of hazardous dwellings for the first time this year
13-04-2015, 08:25
Moscow, the Government of the Russian Federation. Our correspondent, Alexey Nevsky. Here on April 9th at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, a discussion was held on a package of measures on the resettlement of citizens from hazardous housing. The main report on this question was given by the Minister of Construction and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Menn. In this report he discussed for the first time the data on the resettlement of citizens from hazardous dwellings for the first three months of this year. Since January 1st, 7,430 people have been moved already and 148,000 sq.m. of emergency houses has been liquidated. The minister highlighted construction quality control. For this purpose, 122 outside inspections in 35 regions were made. In total, about 3 million sq.m. of hazardous dwellings were settled and 191,860 people resettled in 2014. As a solution to the question of the quality of new-built housing, it is planned to make it obligatory to obtain admission to the Self-Regulating Organization for design and construction of low-rise housing. As additional resources, after a decrease in the average level of joint financing in the regions to 41.5% for housing and communal services, the Fund will direct 6.6 billion rubles to citizens of the Federation. Also this year, changes are planned to Federal Law regarding the Housing and Communal Services Fund, having provided that the regions will be able to submit applications for all limits of financing. At the end of the meeting of the government briefing, the head of the Ministry of Construction, Architecture and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation answered a question from our correspondent: how will funding depend on the ruble rate? Mikhail Menn told us that the program of financing from the emergency fund is barely affected by fluctuations of currency rates because construction materials used in houses under construction are 90% made in Russia. In conclusion, the head of Ministry of Construction, Architecture and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation specified that responsibility for the failure of the program will become more targeted. If before this, the regional governments were responsible for everything and faced a possible penalty of 500,000 rubles, now it will be the responsibility of the municipal authorities, who will accrue a penalty for each day of delay or possible failure.

How many people wish to participate in the construction of the "Turkish stream"
10-04-2015, 09:01
Their willingness to participate in the Gazprom "Turkish Stream" project has been confirmed by Greece, Serbia, Macedonia, Hungary and Turkey. Reporting on this, “Commersant” reminds us that participation by these countries in the project was discussed recently at a meeting with the heads of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Greece, Serbia, Macedonia, Hungary and Turkey in Budapest. At this meeting, representatives of the five countries agreed to regular meetings and the creation of an expert group on the development of gas transmission infrastructure. The next meeting is planned for July, but the individual negotiations between the heads of state will begin earlier. On April 8th in Moscow, Vladimir Putin's meeting took place with the prime minister of Greece, Alex Tsipras, at which the gas question was discussed. And in February, during negotiations with the prime minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, the Russian President Vladimir Putin talked about the route of the future project. The powerful gas stream from Russia will pass along the bed of the Black Sea to Turkey, and thence will be directed through Greece, Macedonia, Serbia and Hungary to a gas hub in the Austrian Baumgarten. Completion of construction and putting the pipeline into operation are planned for December, 2016. This is the alternative to the South Stream project, which was stymied by the European Commission.

This is very important, as with today's level of bank credit interest rates, it is almost impossible to invest in housing and communal services. However, the volume of realized investment programs in housing and communal services now exceeds 300 billion rubles; the total requirements of the sector are 500 billion rubles a year. Therefore, all necessary standard and legal bases for the creation of a favorable and attractive investment climate for investments in housing and communal services in the country have already been prepared.

9-04-2015, 12:33
In the state subsidy program, the rate for a preferential mortgage of 12% won't change, it was claimed in an interview with RIA Novosti by the head of the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Menn. He pointed out that the agreement was reached at a meeting with the First Deputy Prime Minister, Igor Shuvalov. The conditions of the subsidy program won't change, irrespective of whatever happens to the key rate established by the Central Bank.

We will remind you that the introduction, in the Russian Federation, of preferential mortgage lending at a rate no higher than 12%, as approved by the Government of the Russian Federation, took place on March 13th.

What did Chibis say about public-private partnership in housing and communal services?
9-04-2015, 09:32
In Russian housing and communal services, a public-private partnership is working successfully and promoting an improvement in the quality of services, it was claimed today at the Forum taking place in Kazan on housing and communal services by the deputy minister of construction and housing and communal services of the Russian Federation, Andrey Chibis. According to him, public-private partnerships in housing and communal services are one of the most effective instruments in the modernization of this sphere. There are now in Russia already more than 400 concessions in this area, 112 of them concluded in 2014 under the new rules. The volume of investment programs which are being realized in housing and communal services exceeds 300 billion rubles. In total, more than 100 large investment projects are being realized. These are only the first steps of structural reform being carried out in order to attract private business to the management of infrastructure. As examples, Chibis pointed out Tambov and Petrozavodsk, where, with the participation of private operators, water supplies have been seriously improved. Today in Russian housing and communal services, conditions have been created that are necessary to attract private capital. It is one of the most attractive areas for investment because it is an absolutely reliable segment of the Russian economy with guaranteed domestic demand. The task now is not to change the law but to constantly launch new projects and construction to modernize municipal infrastructure, specified the deputy minister.
How contractors are chosen in Moscow
9-04-2015, 08:31
The government of Moscow has adopted the resolution on the statement of an order of the overhaul of apartment houses of Moscow by a fund of contractors, it was reported today by Mayor Sergei Sobyanin. According to the head of the department of the overhaul of Moscow, Arthur Keskinova, the main principles of the new order are the maximum use of norms as provided by federal law, including strict regulation of anti-corruption mechanisms and mechanisms for the protection of fair competition, and anti-dumping measures. So, if the contractor reduces the cost of work by more than 25%, it will require substantial price reduction.
The exact length and design of the Kerch Bridge has been determined
9-04-2015, 06:33
The total length of the bridge across the Strait of Kerch will reach 19 km. This was confirmed on April 4th at a meeting in Simferopol, with the participation of the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, Dmitry Rogozin, the first deputy director of Federal Public Institutions, "Taman", and the construction customer, Roman Novikov reported. According to him, the bridge will combine earth constructions using the existing natural dams of the spit of Tuzla adjoining the Taman Peninsula as well as two constructions located on parallel axes, for railway and automobile transport, with a general extent of 15 km from the spit of Tuzla to the Kerch Peninsula. This bridge will need 250 tons of steel construction. Mr. Rogozin noted that during this construction, the largest shipyard in Crimea, the Kerch Shipyard “Zaliv (the Bay)” could come into play. The CEO of the Zherdev plant immediately expressed his willingness to engineer the structure for the Kerch Bridge because the distance from the factory to the bridge is only 5 to 10 km by sea and enlarged bridge sections could be easily delivered by barge.
