Ata Meken party calls on the President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov to address the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev with the request to assist in solving the problems of the villagers in Klyschino and to help families of Kyrgyz migrants to keep the lands they bought and the houses they built. The appeal of the political organization says.
Earlier, 24.kg news agency wrote about a Kyrgyz village in Tula Oblast. In December 2017, the agency «The 100th kilometer» began selling land in Klischino village in Zaoksky district of Tula Oblast. Almost all land plots owners are from Kyrgyzstan, half of them have Russian citizenship. The village was unofficially named Ala-Too-1.
On July 6, the deputies canceled their resolution «The General Plan for the Development of the District for 2016,» on the basis of which the land in Klischino was allocated for individual housing construction. Now the village, where the first houses of migrants from Kyrgyzstan have already been built, has been transferred back to the category of agricultural land.
«Of course, we understand that, perhaps, this decision was not easy for the local authorities, but it was made, and the construction of houses was started legally, and the decision to abolish land allocation was taken later and was a complete surprise for our migrants. There is a danger that our migrants will suffer greatly from the cancellation of the above mentioned amendments,» Ata Meken explained.
The majority of landowners in Klischino are citizens of Russia.
«We are sure that the decision to become citizens of Russia was realized, and, consequently, they will honor the laws and contribute to the development of the economy. It’s no secret that our migrants are known as the most able-bodied and hardworking. We hope that the Kyrgyz authorities will find a way to help the former and current citizens who have left for Russia for a better destiny. Their further fate depends on these efforts: will they find a happy life in their new homeland,» the appeal says.
