130 residents of the Dagestani settlement of Vremenny have appealed to the Russian Government, asking to order to pay compensations for their houses destroyed during the special operation, the Human Rights Centre (HRC) "Memorial" has stated today.
On September 18, 2014, residents of Vremenny reported the blocking of their settlement by law enforcers, house-by-house raids, and, later, the shortage of foodstuffs and destruction of their yard structures by law enforcers. On October 8, 2014, almost all the residents left the blocked settlement. In December 2014, a special commission found 52 houses unfit for residence.
"130 applicants complain that they cannot receive their due compensations for the lost property and destroyed houses for three years already," states the HRC's release received by the "Caucasian Knot" today.
It also states that several applicants have unsuccessfully tried to adjudge compensations through Moscow and Dagestani courts. They reject the lawsuits and recommend settling disputes within the administrative law.
"At the moment, the social situation in the Vremenny is very tense: 130 families-victims of the special operation are for three years waiting for their due compensations. They have to live with their relatives and friends, or to repair their housing at their own expense. Given the upcoming election, the three-year-long authorities' inaction created an extremely explosive-prone situation, which does not contribute to a favourable perception by the current authorities by the victims," the HRC "Memorial" states in its release.
