A five-storey house on Profintern Street in Omsk is at risk of collapse due to huge cracks in the walls. Fifty families living in the building are trying to get the attention of responsible people.
The house is almost half a century old, but tenants started noticing the first cracks ten years ago. Residents of Omsk failed to have the building recognized as an emergency. During this time, impressive rifts began to creep along the entrances and even inside the apartments, reports the state television and broadcasting company “Irtysh”.
The townspeople suspect that the problems could start because of the unstable foundation. Attempts to resolve the situation through the management company also came to nothing.
After the resonance raised by the media, the appeal was registered with the National Housing Inspectorate. The specialists intend to carry out the necessary control and monitoring measures. The Kirov district prosecutor’s office will do the same.
Earlier it was reported that the Omsk region failed the regional capital repair program. Last year’s indicators were only filled to 40.6%. This could affect the positions of Governor Alexander Burkov, who intends to be re-elected for a second term.
