President Almazbek Atambayev called on not be stingy for 50 soms for insurance

President Almazbek Atambayev called on the people of Kyrgyzstan not be stingy for 50 soms a month for insurance. He said this at a meeting with residents of the village of Yntymak in the Uzgen district of the Osh oblast, who were hit by landslides in the spring.

According to him, people find money for alcohol, tobacco, but don’t rush to insure housing.

This is our mentality: there is money for vodka, cigarettes. It is necessary to think about the state.

In his speech, he cited the United States as an example, where natural disasters occur almost every month, but thanks to the established insurance system neither the state nor citizens have problems with the restoration of housing.

«Okay, I’m already over 60, but among the dead in landslides there are children. Who is responsible for their death? Parents,» the president said.

According to the information department of the president’s office, in the rural districts of Kyzyl October, Karool, 587 plots were allocated in the area of ​​Yntymak, and 118 plots in the village of Ana-Kyzyl for the construction of houses for families affected by the Uzgen district in April 2017.
