A number of media outlets published an appeal by employees of the housing and utilities department of the Ordzhonikidze district of Ufa to the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Alexander Ivanovich Bastrykin. In a video message, they said that their salaries were not paid in full, and the employer did not provide them with inventory and protective clothing.
The Bashkortostan Repubican Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia organized an initial investigation into the appeal posted in the media.
Bastrykin instructed the Head of the Investigative Committee of Russia for the Republic of Bashkortostan D.N. Chernyaev to look into the situation thoroughly, to promptly find out all the circumstances of possible violations of citizens' rights, and to report on the investigative measures carried out.
The progress of execution of the order is under supervision of the Central Office of the Investigative Committee.
