“Officers will be provided (with housing) by 100 percent, warrant officers – by 100 percent, non-commissioned officers – by 100 percent, combat units – by 100 percent,” Alexander Lapin, commander of the Central Military District, reported to the minister.

In turn, Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov noted that all servicemen will be settled by the end of the year. “In our country, only two houses are left for the summer, everything else is rented out at the beginning of May,” he said.

Timur Ivanov noted that in total for the servicemen the brigades have been built, but have not yet commissioned four houses with 80 apartments each and 5 cottages for two apartments each for the command of the formation.

The minister noted that this brigade should become a benchmark in terms of providing personnel with housing and show how the servicemen in all other brigades will live.
