Three years ago, a car wash was built in Pionerskaya Street in the city of Pudozh in Karelia. It began gradually washing the house standing next to it, where an 87-year-old woman lives with her daughter, away into a ravine. Appeals to officials did not help solve the problem. Karelian journalist Tatiana Smirnova reported this in her blog on 7x7.
Three years ago, a car wash was built in Pionerskaya Street in Pudozh, next to the house where 87-year-old Alevtina Korzina lives with her daughter Lyubov Alekseeva. After a while, Alekseeva saw a shed with firewood slide into a ravine.
It turned out that the car wash used a water supply with the help of a public stand-pipe. Because of this, the soil is washed away and water pours onto the site. In the summer of 2021, the women's fence collapsed.
Lyubov Alekseeva appealed to the administration, the prosecutor's office, and the governor, but received formal replies. Social activists also could not help the woman. During the next appeal, the prosecutor's office actually found violations. The agency reported that the car wash had been installed illegally, no permits for its construction and operation had been issued.
Two administration officials were brought to administrative responsibility. The exact punishment is unknown. Despite this, the car wash continues operating, and Alekseeva is trying to get compensation for damage.
Karelian activist Tatiana Smirnova told the story of 72-year-old Alexander Pokotilo from Pyalma, who has nowhere to live, in her blog on 7x7. In 2019, he was asked to vacate the apartment, which was located in an old house, for the period of time, while there was a major renovation. Since then, the repair has not been completed. In addition, all his belongings were taken outside, where they deteriorated.
Recently, she also told about an 82-year-old woman from the Medvezhegorsky District, who had to live in a house on supports. The building was recognized as failing back in 2019, but the woman was promised rehousing no earlier than in 2023.
