The threat of an infrastructure disaster in Russia


New buildings and “human buildings”, which actively planted half-living infrastructure, housing and communal services and energy, finished off its sustainability. Soviet networks, created under Brezhnev, if not under Khrushchev, are not eternal. Local breakdowns that were not eliminated in time caused a cascade of accidents in the Moscow region. Similar messages are coming from other regions - from Yekaterinburg, from the Far East, from the Leningrad region, St. Petersburg, etc.



Communal disaster


A real communal catastrophe broke out during the New Year holidays in cities and towns near Moscow. Tens of thousands of people were left without heat, and in some places without electricity and gas. Wherein news Problems and damage continue to be reported. A local breakdown caused a whole cascade, a series of accidents. Each new accident causes the next. For example, people try to keep warm with electric heaters, and this leads to the destruction of worn-out and overloaded electrical networks.

In other regions the situation is no better, it’s just better covered by the media near Moscow. So, from January 1 to January 7 in the Leningrad region happened 180 accidents on power grid lines, heat supply and water supply facilities,” the regional prosecutor’s office reported.

The main problem is that most of the infrastructure was built during the Soviet period - in the 1960s and 1970s. Both building structures and technological equipment are completely worn out. All deadlines have expired, sometimes several times. And the renewal rate is no more than 1–2% per year. The dignitary “nobles” gloriously feasted on the dying Russian Federation for more than 30 years. Trillions of dollars, euros and rubles in gold were taken out of the country.

Typical peripheral capitalism with elements of thieves feudalism. For some, villas and vineyards on the Cote d'Azur, luxury real estate in Dubai, personal planes and yachts the size of a destroyer, and for others - “human capital”, and even gold ones (more expensive than analogues in Western Europe, Turkey or China) and mortgage slavery .

This feast during the plague (in the dying and degrading Russian world) led to the fact that the deterioration of critical infrastructure (for the northernmost and coldest country in the world) has reached terrible figures - in some places over 90%. The repairs are local, and citizens pay regularly. Payments are growing steadily, and there are more and more accidents and problems. This is about the quality of management by “effective” managers.

“We conducted a survey of the regions. It showed that the wear and tear of treatment facilities is up to 80%, and in the Sverdlovsk, Pskov regions, and the Mari El Republic a wear rate of more than 90% was reported. At the same time, no more than 1-2% per year is updated now,”

- a year ago reported Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Federal Structure, Regional Policy, Local Government and Northern Affairs Andrey Shevchenko.

We are talking about treatment facilities, but it is obvious that this also applies to other infrastructure. For example, when a water supply problem arose in Crimea several years ago due to drought, it turned out that up to 80–90% of the water was leaking from completely rotten pipes. Then communications began to partially change, but the main merit in the “victory” over the problem, apparently, was in the weather - there were heavy rains and snowfalls. Rivers and reservoirs filled up.

It is clear that the wear and tear of housing and communal services, heating mains, water supply, power lines, sewerage, etc. is critical. This is what the current catastrophe in the Moscow region has shown.

Overload of worn-out infrastructure


Why did communications and networks built under Brezhnev last so long? Obviously they should have started to fail earlier.

The answer, apparently, is that “during the rise of Russia from its knees,” when they promised to turn the Russian Federation into an average European country, like Portugal, and began to build an analogue of the Western European consumer society, with credit foreign cars and mortgaged apartments, they buried most of the developed industry of the USSR.

Accordingly, the factories and factories that produced machine tools and cars, tractors and trucks, bearings and nails disappeared. You can still buy it! We “fit into the world market.” True, as a cultural, economic periphery, a pipe.

But the infrastructure created in the USSR remained - boiler houses, power lines, sewerage, water supply, etc. New buildings, entire neighborhoods and villages, shopping and entertainment centers began to be built on this network. The network was old, but it lasted for some time.

However, the discrepancy between the capabilities of the existing infrastructure, which has repeatedly exhausted its resource, and the needs of consumers connected to it, increased. Especially around large cities, Moscow.

Here another catastrophe is superimposed - the Western, liberal idea of ​​​​creating huge agglomerations. They say that we cannot and will not develop the entire Russian Federation. There is no money, but you hold on (your people have mastered them). Therefore, it is necessary to concentrate development around several large agglomerations - Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, etc. And resources can be developed on a rotational basis. This is how the general “optimization” (disposal) of the state and people developed. Villages, villages, towns and cities are dying out, shrinking, and large cities are swelling. With a fundamentally old infrastructure.

If everything is done according to the mind, in the interests of the state and the people, everything should be the other way around. Russia has no need to concentrate its population in megacities. On the contrary, it is necessary to methodically, systematically develop and restore rural Russia. Our entire outskirts, like the Far East, are turning into a human desert. Low-rise buildings, personal estates, villages based on some kind of production. This will partially help solve the demographic problem. In large cities, people do not give birth to children. They consume, have fun and survive. It is a fact.

Every new house, block, or cottage community built that is connected to a worn-out network increases the risk of a recurrence of the disaster. Moreover, in “human villages” this disaster will be much worse than, for example, in a village where the house has its own stove, potbelly stove, its own well and you can install a generator.

What to do?


As has been noted more than once before, the issue is the concept of development. The plan of life. If we are a pipe for the West, and now for the East, then patching up the holes can be endless and pointless. It will explode elsewhere - demography, migration, the agony of school and education, culture, the food industry and agricultural security, etc. Movement in line with the Western concept-plan (slavery) is the degradation and death of the state and the people. Which is exactly what happens.

If we develop on the basis of our concept, program, then we need to develop and restore domestic industry, build new infrastructure. It is impossible to erect “human gardens” that destroy both man and nature and enrich the dignitary nobility. It is necessary to restore and develop low-rise, rural and rural Russia at a new technological level. Rus' is a huge civilization, there is no need to drive people into several megacities, this is in the interests only of the enemies of the Russian world.

Obviously, the the creation of new infrastructure, including housing and communal services, will allow us to begin a new industrialization of Russia. It will give a multifaceted effect. These are communications, supplies, transport communications and transport, power lines and much more.

In general, it is clear that the current communal disasters, the cause of which was the elements (frost) and the unsatisfactory quality of work of managers, and the basic reason was the total wear and tear of the relevant infrastructure, which was not changed as needed, but only patched, show that the Russian Federation has time to there are very few fundamental changes. Maybe not anymore.

Problems poured out as if from a cornucopia - difficulties in supplying and arming the armed forces, developing the military-industrial complex, the need for almost total import substitution, the crisis with fuel, chicken meat and eggs (food security). Wild rise in prices for food, consumer goods, electronics. From the very beginning of 2024, a communal and infrastructural catastrophe has emerged - let us also remember the serious difficulties in civil aviation and automotive industry, railway and river navy (Threat to the country's transport connectivity).

Let’s not forget about the catastrophe in the field of demography and migration (Foreign cultural invasion of Russia), education (Russian school disaster), science and culture. And quantitative negative changes, “bells and whistles” will sooner or later turn into qualitative ones. A perfect storm situation?

          An interesting nuance! In 2018, from comedians to president. P. Grudinin, who created a collective farm where people received good wages, ran for office. salary, apartments and other goodies! After that, he was accused of having bills behind the hill and was removed from the elections. Flabby Zyu didn’t even scratch himself. After that, they began to destroy his collective farm - this honorable duty was entrusted to the governor of the Moscow region A. Vorobyov, holder of a residence permit in Spain and Israel! Along the way, Vorobyov got into construction, putting a relative to act as a screen. They connected the new buildings to that very opportunist boiler room, so shamelessly spoiled the image of Vorobyov - the servant of the Tsar, the father of the people! Now let's compare - WHO IS HU?

        Yes please, some people do this. But the debt accumulates, and then, with a possible sale/inheritance, etc., “suddenly” inconveniently pops up. The capitalists have already thought of everything; they cannot be deceived...

        It may not be concentrated, but without large cities development is no longer possible; large cities are the scientific/industrial centers of the state.

          This is a utopia. Even in the USSR it was not possible to develop the city and the village at the same time, the village was slowly losing people... And now all this looks completely ridiculous. We need colossal resources for the development of the village, incredible propaganda efforts, unprecedented preferences for everyone moving to village fields - all this should be done by the state (and not by the “effective owner”), because it is expensive and unprofitable for a hundred years in advance... Under capitalism this will never happen will.

            Then the village at least slowly lost people, and after 1991 “freedom and democracy” actually blew away the population of tens of thousands of villages and towns.
            The killing of villages began when state and collective farms were dispersed, slaughtering livestock and tearing up property and land into shares (some with a tractor, some with a pitchfork, some with a milk pan), leaving people without work, supposedly now there will be more farmers. As a result, there is neither a mass farmer nor a mass collective farmer, and the fields are occupied by Sosnovsky's hogweed. Somewhere in the central and southern regions, something else is spinning, but the North, the Urals, Siberia and the Far East are simply depopulated.
            However, after the liquidation of collective farms, the persistent people somehow still clung to the established way of life and wandered around the area doing part-time jobs, returning to home. Then, in the second stage, schools and kindergartens, post offices, cultural centers, libraries and medical posts were killed, after which it became impossible to teach, treat and occupy the population and children with something and people flocked to the cities. The grown-up generations of “post-collective farmers” have no idea what village life is like. The remaining old people rested in the Bose. Sparsely populated villages were cut off from light and communications, and the roads leading to them turned into directions and anti-tank ditches. I also can’t imagine how the village can be revived without restoring basic social services and roads.

              The city is not a Russian invention, the same Babylon appeared in time immemorial, because a positive feedback occurs in the settlement, the larger the settlement, the more convenient it is to live there, because the city is strengthened for natural reasons. Another thing is that after the collapse of the union, the privatizers grabbed part of the public goods - heating networks or electrical networks and confiscated the quitrent like landowners into their own pockets, without investing in network repairs. These parasite privatizers must be removed, then the money will go to repairs.

                Agree. Only considering that the networks are worn out 80-90% of the time, there is almost no time left for this. The lack of state control over the owners-privatizers in terms of maintaining the networks in working order has led to the fact that private owners have insufficient financial assets for updating and it will not be possible to quickly create them, and there are not enough public funds in the treasury for their large-scale updating due to the costs for conducting non-actions. If the state, at the legislative level and forcibly, obliged the privatizers to invest at least 25% of the collected payments annually in updating networks, then everything would be tip-top, but alas, the municipalities have dumped responsibility on the irresponsible private owner and now no one gives a damn, for now there won't be thunder.

            This is true. I remember how in the USSR in the eighties they began to develop the non-black earth region, allocate agricultural equipment for it, subsidize individual construction, etc. But no one went there, everyone preferred to live in cities, and in the mentioned regions there remained old men and women, whom it was somehow awkward to put on tractors and combines, and they, for the most part, would not even get on the bandwagon. Nowadays, except for calling and conscience, there are no guaranteed incentives and preferences to be expected. And colossal funds are needed! Are they now “preferred” elsewhere?

            I recently read how Khrushchev, before the war, wrote an article in Pravda about the consolidation of collective farms and the liquidation of small branches. He got a big blow for it, and then he apologized for a long time. I remember how we had a creamery in our village, the store had cheese and butter, then after Malenkov Khrushchev came, the factory disappeared and so did the butter. Nowadays, young people work, mostly in Moscow, there are divorces, there are few children, if previously they could be left to their parents, now they are forced to work. We installed gas, but the houses are cheap, the old generation is leaving, the young are leaving. It became sad and depressing.

    This is called capitalism, every resident of our country is interesting to the state only as long as money can be squeezed out of him, and after that the person is literally written off, and this happens not only to people. Why provide people with good housing when you can herd everyone into a high-rise building, which will come out cheaper during the construction of houses , you can sell it to people more expensive than houses, but it won’t be the developer who will service it, these are already the problems of others, and they don’t care much about the network problem either, they are used to making money here and now, and then there’s a flood. But when there was a crisis in the construction industry, all these offices immediately rushed to the state for help, it seems to me personally that in a country where a studio of 29 square meters in a huge residential area on the outskirts of an industrial city, practically in an industrial zone in the middle of some vacant lot, is sold for 4 million rubles, you know whether Houston we have problems......

    In the housing and communal services sector, only three aspects surprise me:
    - Why the hell does a tenant pay 20% VAT to those who don’t even sell services, but stupidly sit on their redistribution?
    - what kind of abomination did these water meters come up with, forcing the poor population to save water in a country that ranks second in the world in terms of its availability?
    - when will these housing inspectors finally check (start checking) the staffing levels of these housing and communal services and the principles of calculating salaries by position, and at the same time check that the same janitors and entrance cleaners have a printout of duties and a plan of the assigned territory?

        It can be considered that the start of the mass use of individual water meters in Russia was given in 1996. That year, namely, on April 3, the Federal Law of the Russian Federation “On Energy Saving” was adopted, but it only recommended that consumers use water meters to account for the consumption of this resource. And, in fact, this state of affairs, in which the installation of water meters was voluntary, existed for a whole decade. And 23.11.2009/261/1.07.2012 a new law “On energy saving and increasing energy efficiency and on introducing amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation” No. XNUMX-FZ was adopted. Its norm, according to which all consumption facilities must be equipped with water meters, was introduced on July XNUMX, XNUMX. Since that time, the installation of water meters in apartments, private houses and other facilities that have a centralized water supply has become mandatory.

        In 1996, DAM was busy in S-P:
        From 1990 to 1997 - teaching at St. Petersburg State University. At the same time, in 1990-1995, he was an adviser to the Chairman of the Leningrad City Council of People's Deputies Anatoly Sobchak, then an expert at the Committee on External Relations of the St. Petersburg City Hall, whose chairman was Vladimir Putin. At Smolny, Medvedev was involved in the development and execution of transactions, contracts and various investment projects. Completed an internship in Sweden on local government issues. The President of the Institute of National Strategy, Stanislav Belkovsky, characterizes Dmitry Medvedev as pliable, soft, psychologically dependent - always absolutely psychologically comfortable for Vladimir Putin. According to other people, Medvedev is “not soft at all, but very domineering.”
        According to political scientist Alexei Mukhin, Medvedev made a major contribution to the defense of Vladimir Putin from charges following an investigation into the activities of the Mayor’s Committee on External Relations in 1992, which threatened Putin with the loss of his position.
        In 1993 - co-founder of Finzell CJSC, owner of a 50% stake. In 1993-1998 - co-founder and director of the Ilim Pulp Enterprise corporation for legal issues, owner of a 20% stake[42]. In 1998, he became a representative of Ilim on the Board of Directors of OJSC Bratsk Timber Industry Complex. In 1994, he co-founded the Balfort Consulting Firm CJSC.
        According to a number of media reports, from 1990 to 1995 he worked as a lawyer at the St. Petersburg joint-stock insurance company Rus, headed by Vladislav Reznik.
        In 1996, after the defeat of Anatoly Sobchak in the elections, he stopped working at Smolny

        All this is the machinations of the young reformers... They raised the tariffs so much that users began to count every liter, and the bourgeoisie made a lot of money from installing water meters, while organizing control bodies that make money SUPERVISING THE USERS.

          Well, paying according to the standard without a meter is completely out of the question, because these standards don’t know what they are designed for. According to my counters, for two adults (and without limiting myself in any way), the payment is less than for one according to the standard.

    The critical part of the article is correct and justified. But there are problems with the creative part...
    Who will implement his “development concept”? That “patriotic” government that, under “effective capitalism”, created a catastrophic situation in the housing and communal services sector without repairing or updating fixed assets? It's not even funny. These people don't even really know how to steal. They plundered the country to the bone, took all the money to the West, and then it turned out that they were no longer needed in the West, and their money was simply taken away. Without raising the question of power, all these “development concepts” are not worth a penny.
    The complexity of the problem is also greatly understated. Even if Soviet power and national ownership of the means of production are restored now, the rotten pipes will not repair themselves. There are few production capacities left, there are not enough workers and specialists in this field, so even under ideal conditions it will take decades to restore all this.
    P/S I looked at the reaction of residents on social networks and it’s understandable that people are desperate and cursing. But they don’t understand the severity of the problem. Almost everyone appeals to corruption, to where their taxes go, to individual officials, the most class-conscious scold Putin. But the realization that we have simply gone 30 years without repairs and that now replacing Putin with a conventional Navalny or Patrushev will not give anything to fix rotten pipes.

        No, it definitely needs to be changed. This is not even discussed. The point is different. The goal of the anti-people regime was, according to Chubais, “to create irreversibility.” And in many ways they created them. Putin's change is the minimum necessary condition for economic restoration. But the condition is completely insufficient. The entire “system of market reforms” needs to be changed. But this is not enough, after this you will have to work very hard with very little material resources.

To tell people that after the liquidation of the anti-people regime, we will be able to quickly correct the consequences of his rule and will live no worse than under Brezhnev (and people think exactly like that, and also criticize “stagnation” - they say there is a deficit, this did not happen, that) or tell the truth, that after “effective capitalism” there will be ashes left, and just in order to reach the pre-perestroika level (despite the fact that the world has moved far ahead and changed) one will have to work for several decades.

                        It's not really about laziness. You simply cannot install thermostats in the communal heating network. They have a very small hole under the needle, and it will instantly become clogged with rust, after which the battery will stop heating altogether. Everyone has gone through this. Of course there is a way, but it is very capital-intensive - install a heat exchanger in the apartment, distribute heat throughout the apartment with a circulation pump, replace all pipes with cross-linked polyethylene, crimp installation, replace batteries with panel steel radiators, do not forget to install an expansion tank and an “oxygen dehydrator” in the circuit "(or whatever its scientific name is).

    In December, a lot of snow fell in our city, and the city froze.

    Instead of a 30-40 minute drive to work, it took me 2-3 hours to get to work - roads were not cleared, cars were slipping, many abandoned their cars overnight right on the road, since they couldn’t drive into the yard, which added to the severity of the situation. An almost apocalyptic picture - cars "parked" on a double solid road in the middle of the avenue. Thanks to the traffic police, they didn’t fine me - they weren’t visible at all.

    The city leadership, apparently having found a worthy example to follow, stated that the necessary services are working and will complete all tasks on time. The dates themselves were not announced. Perhaps the authorities did something else, but the results of the efforts were not noticeable. However, once I saw a Kamaz truck loaded with snow.

    After 10 days the snow melted and everything fell into place.

    Once again I thought that the local authorities have no reason to somehow pay attention to our needs, they have their own concerns and problems. But the “straight line” did not coincide in time. Of course, they are people too and sympathize with us, but they won’t go out of their way to help in any way.

    Modern capitalism implies economic competition in economics and political competition in politics. Otherwise, the bulk will live like a herd of powerless and defenseless creatures in front of the rich class, which holds power.

      Modern capitalism implies economic competition in economics and political competition in politics.

      A very precise definition - Implies. In fact, economic competition boils down to the fact that in order to survive in this struggle, competitors unite into groups or are absorbed (this is especially clearly seen in the example of aircraft manufacturing) - so that as a result, several transnational monsters are formed that divide the market.
      And political competition has already been reduced to a farce in which the puppeteers’ puppets play the roles assigned to them. And the puppeteers seem to be going berserk out of boredom - either the player on the piano will be installed as president, or the grandfather on the punch cards, led away from the podium by the hand, will be nominated for a second term.

        Monopolization does take place, IT is closer to me than the aircraft industry, there are also strong positions of monopolists here - maybe even stronger. This is not always bad for the population, but a fact is a fact. On the other hand, no one has abolished natural monopolies. As far as I know, governments are trying to regulate monopoly.

        There are peculiarities in political competition in the world, but there is competition itself, and at the municipal level it is very strong. This level is even more important for the population.

        More than 1.7 million calls to the President during the direct line is a disgusting indicator. The authorities, by the way, encourage appeals, since the reaction is often immediate and indicative.

      “I have never shied away from this responsibility and I don’t intend to shirk,” Putin added. (15:16 18.12.2014/20141218/1038992763) https://ria.ru/XNUMX/XNUMX.html

    Here you go, journalist! Molorik! For money and misunderstanding, he lumped flies, cutlets, and a bunch of other things into one pile. Well, the article needs to be worked on!
    - What should I write?
    - Just repost from other articles that have nothing to do with the topic of housing and communal services. Nothing! The main thing is to fast and fasten your money. People is gobbling it up! "Rus', enemies of the Russian world!" - that's it! Even the military-industrial complex has fastened it. Comrade Journalist, look more carefully at what you copy-paste from Tyrnet.
    And also, Dear Comrade Journalist, read briefly, while sitting on the toilet, “The Heart of a Dog.”
    The devastation in the “toilet housing and communal services” has nothing to do with the enemies of Rus'.
    It is enough to simply arrest the heads of housing and communal services and municipalities, as well as check their movable and immovable property and assets in their accounts (which, of course, are registered in the names of their mothers, fathers, brothers-in-law, wives, friends), and freeze everything.
    We bet that in 2-3 days everything will be restored and the apartments will be heated to the average summer temperature in the city of Tashkent? The resources for this are like shoe polish in a factory!
    By the way, who in the Russian government is responsible for housing and communal services? How is it warm there in his cottage? Or - also, so-so? And if the Head of Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation is related to the enemies of Rus', then let the relevant competent authorities give a legal assessment.

    In December, a lot of snow fell in our city, and the city froze.

    Instead of a 30-40 minute drive to work, it took me 2-3 hours to get to work - roads were not cleared, cars were slipping, many abandoned their cars overnight right on the road, since they couldn’t drive into the yard, which added to the severity of the situation. An almost apocalyptic picture - cars "parked" on a double solid road in the middle of the avenue. Thanks to the traffic police, they didn’t fine me - they weren’t visible at all.

    The city leadership, apparently having found a worthy example to follow, stated that the necessary services are working and will complete all tasks on time. The dates themselves were not announced. Perhaps the authorities did something else, but the results of the efforts were not noticeable. However, once I saw a Kamaz truck loaded with snow.

    After 10 days the snow melted and everything fell into place.

    Once again I thought that the local authorities have no reason to somehow pay attention to our needs, they have their own concerns and problems. But the “straight line” did not coincide in time. Of course, they are people too and sympathize with us, but they won’t go out of their way to help in any way.

    Modern capitalism implies economic competition in economics and political competition in politics. Otherwise, the bulk will live like a herd of powerless and defenseless creatures in front of the rich class, which holds power.

    For now, it’s snowing again and I’m reading the weather reports with hope.

    What else is left to do?


    Weird question! Write and post not here, but on the website of the Administration of your city, as well as on the website of the local prosecutor’s office. Usually, 2-3 requests are enough. And here no one will help you. And if you don’t know your rights and only know how to use Tyrnet to track the weather forecast for the next 7-8 years, then this is the right place for you: to complain and scold the world Zionist Jew-Masonic conspiracy of trans-national corporations led by the main enemy of all free people on planet Earth, third from the sun.

    But how competently our guardians of citizens’ rights worked!
    Less than a week has passed since in freezing Klimovsk near Moscow (more than 170 high-rise buildings were left without heating), the director of a cartridge plant, the head of the boiler room and the deputy head of the administration were arrested.
    Stories from “investigators” about water hammer, about careless arrestees who did not prepare the boiler room for winter, etc. This is all cheap clownery for the losers.
    As rightly noted in the article, there was a routine burst of networks worn out into rubbish in several areas, after which the head of the boiler house, after total ignoring the network owner’s attempts to eliminate the bursts, did what he had to do, namely, extinguished the boilers and drained the water from the equipment, which saved at least the equipment boiler room
    Now they’ll put a switchman in prison, people will be allowed not to pay for heat in January + they’ll throw in a couple of thousand to shut their mouths, and we’ll move on.
    Because upgrading utility networks is expensive and tedious, which means no one needs it. It’s better to build a punishment for residential complexes and hang them on the same networks, because this is profit + kickbacks, and not that’s all.

    A few months ago I wrote about my situation with the construction of a new residential complex on the site of Khrushchev buildings.
    In 1982, my father was given an apartment by the Ministry of Defense in a Khrushchev-era building at Rechnoy Vokzal, which allowed us to move from a communal apartment on Leninsky to a separate apartment. In fact, I live in it to this day. We have been introduced to a renovation program, and I am in favor of it, because Khrushchev-era buildings today no longer meet more or less comfortable housing standards.
    By 2028 they promise to give us another housing. The developer, however, is still silent, but nearby, on a former wasteland, 7 houses of 35 floors are being built. Here, we now have a complex of 8 identical five-story buildings. And they will all fit into one of these buildings. Then 8 pcs. The 5-story buildings will be demolished and another complex of 1 units will be built in their place. 8-story buildings.
    The question really worries me VERY much is - what about communications, which were never designed for such a number of residents, what about a school, a kindergarten, and other infrastructure? The developer is again tactfully silent. The city too.
    Just if you count primitively - now in one Khrushchev building there are 4 apartments on the floor, 20 apartments in the entrance, 4 entrances, a total of 80 apartments in the house, 8 houses, a total of 640 apartments in the complex.
    The 35-story building has 6 apartments per floor, 204 apartments in the entrance (1st floor for shops, etc.), 3 entrances, a total of 612 apartments in one building, which in fact is equal to the entire Khrushchev complex.
    Those. 8 times more people will live in the same place, if you don’t take that vacant lot on which 7 houses are ALREADY being built. And if you take it, there will be about 15 people!!! times more. On the same piece of land with the same infrastructure.

    So, the houses are being successfully completed and have now begun to be connected to the network. Electricity began to go out periodically in the area + the temperature in the apartments dropped significantly. Also, in already built high-rise buildings, water began to flow poorly to the upper floors because... There was not enough pressure in the pipes.
    But that's okay. Don’t change the town planning plan because of such trifles. After all, everything has already been approved, everything has been entered and everything is planned for the future.

        Similarly delirious, my hair started to stand up. Commerce in the housing and public utilities sector is simply not applicable. Changing a service provider is not like going to another store. At most, you can change the management company, or create a TSN, but this can only solve part of the problems with a particular house, but the main networks, boiler houses, treatment facilities, etc. In the country, tens of thousands of different LLCs are managed, the owners of which are mainly local princes affiliated with the local government. Their job is not to provide services, but to charge for services. In our city there were normal services responsible for garbage collection, then the local authorities decided to create a “single operator”. As a result, the prices for garbage removal more than doubled, while the quality dropped (they began to collect it less often, they installed cheap garbage cans, which were all broken), and there was no sorting of garbage. But someone from the authorities who came up with this became greatly enriched. And try changing the operator, because there are no other companies left in the region that are allowed to remove garbage.

        Have you encountered non-privatized housing and communal services? This is complete ruin, theft.

        Law enforcement must work against the collapse, and the housing and communal services must work on the principle of a non-profit organization in order to carry out the function according to technical regulations with a tariff salary scale for management and workers, audits must be carried out every few years, such a system will work like clockwork. There should be no profits in housing and communal services.
        If you add private owners to the housing and communal services chain, then they will extract 70%-80% of the money collected from a resident for a yacht, and there will be no money left for repairs. Private traders are good for buying and selling, but in the housing and communal services sector, private traders are evil. The market in housing and communal services and power grids does not work.

    Well, well... I'll say my word.
    At the end of the 90s, a certain Moscow region developer came to our village, located quite north of Moscow, and immediately went to the mayor - they say, I want to build nine-story buildings here, how do you look at this? The mayor, a military man, said: yes, please, just talk to the deputies first. Imagine, back then we still had a deputy council and it consisted of fighting Soviet people who survived the XNUMXs. They called a meeting, I attended it. I testify that such speeches can now only be heard from the rare, most literate and educated State Duma deputies. They said - if you want to build, build us a second boiler house, and you will build houses where we indicate. And they indicated where they could place houses and where they couldn’t. There was a clinch, but the deputies won, the “development” installed a new, additional boiler room, in some places old pipes were replaced, we still have no problems with hot water. As with cold, batteries are hot. Only occasionally do wires break and electricity goes out... But!
    More than ten years have passed since then, and something has changed noticeably during this time. The head of that same council of local deputies has been our mayor for five years now. I suspect that, remembering how great the power of deputy opinion is and the legislative importance of the decisions of deputies, the council of deputies by the mayor has been reduced to nothing, the door is constantly locked - knock or don’t knock on it, no one will answer. The schedule of public receptions on the door has disappeared, the gilded plaque remains, but no one knows whether we have a village council of deputies or not at all. And for some time now, house meetings have not been held, deputies do not walk around the courtyards and entrances, do not communicate with us, no one has heard that such meetings exist at all and that we can rely on them. In those long-gone times, we knew the deputies by sight, they were our acquaintances, we talked to them, they responsively helped us. Now there is no one to talk to. The mayor's secretary once told me that she had no idea whether we had deputies. Maybe there is. But either they went underground, as it were, became “incognito,” or the institution of village parliament was abolished due to inconvenience. Come into the village whoever you want, turn in whatever you want. They turn it back. But that is another story.

    The infrastructure problem was predicted quite a long time ago and its reasons are clear, including systemic theft. However, I want to draw attention to another circumstance. There have been repeated calls to destroy life support systems (electricity and water supply, heating, sewerage) in Ukraine. It is quite clear that in this case the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be provided with a sufficient number of means of destruction of our infrastructure and even the formal Western bans on their use will be lifted. Are the consequences for residents of our cities (especially large ones) in the European part of the country clear?!

    Technical complex sources of heat and electricity. energies combined into huge systems and distributed utility networks, which have a high operational inertia, which have not been properly maintained, not checked or controlled for decades, cannot be promptly repaired!(((Take control of this, even the president, even the Lord God himself(. Since they work on strict physical laws and methodologies invented by people, and, accordingly, on human logic. Yes, of course, in an emergency order, with nerves, sweat and blood, this heating system will be repaired, but those “gentlemen of fortune” who determine everything the framework and levels of “quality” of our life, over the past three decades, will not bear real responsibility(. Why? Because, in this case, they need to judge themselves! And this is impossible(. Therefore, the way out of such a systemic emergency is Housing and communal services of Russian cities, only one, is the formation by the citizens themselves, FROM THEIR ENVIRONMENT, of district, city and regional self-government bodies and, in parallel with them, the creation, with the help of qualified technical specialists, engineers, economists, lawyers, accountants, bodies of SYSTEMATIC PUBLIC CONTROL for the work of municipalities, the development, adoption and implementation of social development budgets and industrially oriented tax policies. Otherwise, the mafia is immortal!(

      "technical complex sources of heat and electrical energy, combined into huge systems and distributed utility networks... cannot be promptly repaired!"

      what terrible words you said. It’s simply very difficult to find a more primitive device than a hot water boiler. These boilers have been used for hundreds of years. it doesn’t matter what the water is heated with - electricity, gas, fuel oil, firewood, coal, dried manure - it just heats the water. then, there are control and safety automatics, shut-off valves, pumps, and pipes - the same heating plants that have rotted throughout the country. that's all, everything is elementary simple, repairable and reliable if done correctly. Why can’t they repair or build new ones? because, although all this is cheap, it costs some money, and who would throw away money so that it would be good for you? That’s right, no one, and that’ll do. and it went away as long as the safety margin of Soviet products allowed them to at least somehow function. and when it ended, that’s how it all began laughing It will only get worse, and each next winter will bring more and more new surprises. but all this can be overcome if, instead of meaningless and useless construction projects, such as toll highways, unnecessary gas pipelines and hundreds of thousands of people, we begin specific infrastructure repairs, declare 2024 or 2025 the year of the pipe and replace all the pipes - both heat and gas - within a year and water. take the skin off the Millers and Sechins and other Grefs (I think they know who they are), and start working like an adult. jobs will appear, industry will develop, living conditions will improve for millions of people. It just needs to be done simultaneously all over the country, and with reserves for development, and not patch up Trishkin’s caftan with pieces. It won't give you anything other than expenses. It’s not all as complicated as we are told, and not so expensive, since both the materials and tools are simple and cheap. just take it and do it, because what can the authorities and the president do for their people?

        Regarding the simplicity of engineering networks and sources of heat and electricity. I don’t agree with energy, since I personally installed and configured some segments of these systems in the 90s and early 2000s, and then designed electrical networks. supply, automation and dispatching of residential and public buildings, worked in the capital repair fund of one of the regional centers of Russia. Therefore, I don’t need to explain how and what works there). That's not the point. THE POINT IS WHO OWNS THIS PROPERTY, WHO FORMES, ADOPTS AND CONTROLS OPERATION AND DEVELOPMENT BUDGETS, WHO FORMS TAX POLICY, PRINTS MONEY AND SELLS THEM TO COMMERCIAL BANKS AT ROBBERY RATES, WHO DETERMINES ET, SETS AND CONTROLS PRICES FOR EVERYTHING, WHO AND WHOSE INTERESTS REPRESENTS IN DISTRICT, CITY AND REGIONAL SELF-GOVERNMENT BODIES. WHO PASSES WHAT LAWS AND REGULAR ACTS, AND IN WHOM INTERESTS. IT IS ABOUT POWER. WHOSE IS SHE? WHOSE INTERESTS DOES IT PROTECT AND PROMOTE? IT'S ABOUT SPECIFIC, BENEFITABLE ONLY A CERTAIN GROUP OF NOuveau Riche, LEGAL RELATIONS OF PRESIDENT FORMS OF PRIVATE PROPERTY AND THE STATE! Everything else is just a consequence.

    The reason for the problems in the country is greed, stupidity, and illiteracy.
    During Soviet times, enterprise profits were used to solve social problems. Times were different: there was no transport, mechanization was at a low level. In order for an enterprise to operate, it needs workers, so there was a workers’ settlement next to the enterprise, and the housing was built by the enterprise itself. After the war, in order to solve problems with housing, the future new settlers themselves built after work, and the company provided building materials. The property was state-owned, but social facilities were on the balance sheet of the enterprise, i.e. it was responsible for the condition of the facilities, and used the profits to make repairs to kindergartens, etc. objects. Residents did only cosmetic repairs to the apartment, while major repairs were done by enterprises. Residents were evicted during renovations. Dilapidated housing was demolished and new, well-appointed houses were built. Enterprise profits were spent on maintaining social facilities. Where are the profits of enterprises now, who do they work for, if the money is in the accounts of Western banks. And understand: money does not lie in banks, the bank uses it at its own discretion, i.e. Today, the profits of Russian companies are used in the interests of the West. I remember in early childhood people lived in one- and two-story houses with no comfortable amenities: stove heating, cesspools. As the enterprise developed, a powerful boiler house appeared, i.e. a technical opportunity has emerged to provide heat to the housing stock. A development plan was developed, consumption volumes were calculated, and utility networks were laid. In Soviet times, utility networks were designed for consumption volumes; when laying utility networks, pipe brands were used that were indicated in the estimate of construction documentation. Today, at the request of the “effective” ones, the standards and “snip-wheezes” were sent away. But the GOST pipe grades indicated which materials, under what pressure and at what speed, this type of pipe was designed for transportation, and SNiPs had standards. This is how projects for the development of microdistricts and entire cities were developed. The projects indicated which capacities were in use and which were free. And obtaining permission to build a new facility is necessary in order to establish the fact of the availability of free capacity. And not in order to replenish the pocket of the official occupying the chair. I went to the hearings on the city's general plan. There you could take materials (maps, disks, etc.). But when I later got acquainted with the materials: objects were drawn there in free places, but there were no calculations for connecting to utility networks. What does this lead to? For many years I traveled where utilities from the city’s water supply run next to the road. After infill development, where previously there were one-story houses, many apartment buildings above 10 floors were built. And the most interesting thing is that water periodically poured over the asphalt, i.e. It is impossible to cross the road without getting your shoes wet. And the most interesting thing is that the pipes were new, and they periodically burst. The cause of the breakthrough is the supply of water with parameters that do not correspond to operating conditions.

    In general, the author decided to hype up a hot topic.
    Here I live in an ordinary regional center of the Tula region. Electricians have been capitalizing everything for about 5 years now, there are vultures all around, of course they have blackouts, not without this, but the networks are capitalized.
    City boiler houses have all been replaced with modular ones. It's the same in rural villages.
    This is the third year that all heating mains have been replaced. In fact, everything has already changed.
    The water supply line from the water intake to the city was replaced with HDPE.
    Gorgaz has completed highways in the city and is finishing up the villages.
    Rostelecom has completely changed its backbones to off-pipes and is now building gpon networks.
    In urban villages, roofs are being built on two-story buildings.
    The roads have all been repaired. New traffic lights, connected to the network.

    All my life I thought that I was living in a hole, that I had to go to Tula or order something to buy something sensible. And then you read Samsonov’s verses and realize that you live in the most luxurious place.

    Several years ago, not yet retired, I tried to convince a work colleague that Russia should be self-sufficient. He was sincerely convinced that we would buy everything for raw materials and that it was enough for us to develop the raw materials industry. Chubais was a “worthy leader” for him. For him, for example, it is normal that the electrical cable has a smaller cross-section than specified and/or is not made of electrical copper - this is the buyer’s problem - “you just need to buy a more expensive cable”; it’s good that we invest in foreign securities - the profit is big... The problem is that this colleague is Russian, he is over 60 years old, has a higher technical education, holds a high position in the enterprise, calls himself a believer and “sincerely cares for Russia". “Enlightenment” came to him after Chubais fled. But throughout his entire career, he supported the foreign manufacturer as best he could, convinced that he was doing a good deed. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of thousands of similar people. These people are among us, they are our immediate superiors, colleagues and neighbors. They firmly believe in the rightness of people like Chubais.
    In the long term, such people cause enormous damage to the country. I assume that such people are a product of ideological indoctrination, which we supposedly do not have. In fact, there is a powerful anti-state ideology. And its results, i.e. our problems are just emerging.

      We really don’t have any ideology other than advertising. but it exists in the West, and it operates successfully, influencing the minds of hundreds of thousands of our people, from the president to your colleague. although, here the president looks more like an agent of influence than one besotted with an alien ideology

    In the sphere of heating networks, energy networks in the Russian Federation, there is pure feudalism, the privatizers have seized the heating networks and, like landowners, collect rent for the right of ownership from former national property, the rent is used to buy yachts, and the population will freeze.

    This is not an emergency, this is a systemic, man-made tragedy.

    We all know who owns the “court” construction companies: MR-group, Samolet, PIK.
    It is for them, as systemically important ones, that amendments to the new law (on escrow accounts) were adopted.
    Court developers are building low-cost housing in huge arrays of “vertical Buchenwalds.”
    Well-fed people sign documents for the delivery of houses, connect them to decrepit communications and small thermal power plants, although basic calculations show that the infrastructure is not designed for such an overload.
    But updating it is expensive, the profit will be less if a new thermal power plant is built for each new residential area. clinic, school, kindergarten, etc.
    In some places, children study in 3 (three) shifts!

    Therefore, the “master” said: “accept”!
    And they accept.
    And when people move into built houses, mass accidents begin. Then the local kings “heroically” fight the “elements”.
