It will be built for citizens whose apartments have suffered due to the explosion of household gas in the house number 15 of the second city microdistrict. Two entrances were recognized as emergency and 54 apartments were found to be unfit for living. Citizens were temporarily settled in rented housing. The cost of its rent is paid at the expense of the regional budget.

Mikhail Mishustin instructed the head of the republic Batu Khasikov to take the project under his personal control.

In addition, no hydrotesting has been carried out. With the help of federal funding, specialists will check the compliance of the facility with design solutions, assess its construction readiness and calculate the amount of additional funds required for commissioning.
