Critics of the capital renovation project, which involved the discrediting of “irresponsible politicians and demagogues”. These individuals do not think about the citizens living in homes that are in pre-emergency condition. This opinion was expressed by the speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, TASS reported on Tuesday, June 6.

“A huge amount of property worn out in 1986, these buildings were operational term, there are risks, which every year more and more,” said the speaker, stressing that the project is not just good — he’s necessary.

Volodin also has not excluded that the program of renovation of housing may become a pilot project, after which we can talk about the demolition of Khrushchev in Russian regions.

14 may in Moscow on Sakharov Avenue held a rally against the renovation. According to official figures, was attended by about eight thousand people, according to unofficial — more than 20 thousand. 27 may a similar event took place on the Suvorov square. May 28 — on the street Vavilov. It was attended by about three thousand people, specifies RIA Novosti.

The resettlement programme will begin in autumn this year. As was stated by the mayor Sergei Sobyanin, for the demolition of all the buildings that fall under the program of renovation of the housing stock will take at least 10-15 years. Order on the elimination of all Moscow Khrushchev and the construction in their place new housing Sobyanin gave the President of Russia Vladimir Putin in February.
