A publication on one of the internet sites reported that an elderly home front worker could not get help from the authorities in solving her housing problem. According to the media, the 91-year-old woman lives together with her disabled son in a private house in the town of Atkarsk in Saratov Region. The elderly woman has to dig trenches herself in order to prevent her home from flooding, as their house is located in a ravine.
