There are about 35,000 builders working in the new regions, and three quarters of them are young people, said Minister of Construction and Housing and Communal Services Irek Fayzullin during the plenary session “Megaprojects as a driver of economic development.”
“This happened last year too – the participation of young people in new regions <...> Without young people, nothing is being done now, it is simply impossible,” he said.
At the end of September, Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin saidthat 33 state-owned companies and about 50,000 builders are involved in the restoration of the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Kharkov regions.
As Vedomosti previously wrote, by the end of this year the Ministry of Construction plans to restore 7,413 facilities in new regions.
In particular, 4,018 objects are multi-apartment buildings (MCD), 39 of which will be built anew, and 238 individual housing construction objects will also be restored. It is planned to restore 1,625 housing and communal services facilities, of which 78 will be built anew. 951 social, cultural and household facilities (SKB) will be restored, 27 will be built, and seven production and business facilities will be restored.
At the same time, 4492 objects have already been restored. In 2022, 3,790 objects were restored and built.
In the fall of 2022, following the results of referendums, the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions became part of Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin emphasized that residents of the annexed territories “become citizens of the Russian Federation forever.” In January, the head of state instructed the government to speed up work to improve living standards in the new regions. Later, he called for bringing the regions to the national level within the current decade.
