More real estate drama – this time in the Moscow region

A nightmare that dates back to 2004 – and refuses to go away.

What I found truly shocking when speaking to people about this story was the fact that because of some kind of pissing contest between the local authorities and the construction company, residents couldn’t get ambulances to come out to their location. Because the location technically didn’t exist. And while I use the phrase “pissing context” here, it’s very obvious that the health and safety of the residents its ultimately the responsibility of the local government in the town of Oktyabrsky. This is a classic situation of Russian bureaucrats gone wild. These people don’t have the slightest notion that they’re public servants.
