Today one of federal TV channels broadcast a report on dozens of residential houses in Samara being in an emergency state and featuring leaky roofs, mold, etc. In particular, a senior resident of the house reported that her health worsened due to humidity. Despite numerous complaints of the citizens, authorities refuse to deal with renovation works and the utility management company responsible for these houses cannot be reached by residents.
