Anna-Lena Laurén: The Russian gasolyckorna is linked to corruption

at the door. My neighbor, a militant Moskvatant who get the salesman to take to sjappen in five seconds, has forbidden me to open the door for the unknown.

I can still never help but at least ask who's calling.

" Who's there? I wondered.

– Gaskontrollen! replied a young man.

I asked a few follow-up questions, at the same time as the other door opened and my neighbor combative sticking out of the nose.

– It is only zjuliki (con-man)! Do not open! she announced.

The young man showed a piece of identification. He would check if our gas pipes are in good condition.

I said that I can't do other than drop in a gaskontrollör. He looked at the pipe in the kitchen, checked that the faucet worked, and gave me some advice on how I should keep track of the valve continues to hold.

the Neighbor refused to let him in.

with gas accidents in the Russian home. According to the Russian news agency TASS's compilation, there was a forty gas explosions in Russian residential buildings between 2008 and 2014, from Sochi to Arkhangelsk.

the Situation since then has not improved. Personally I live in a moskovitiskt medelklasskvarter where gasventilerna actually controlled – in contrast to many other cities in Russia. But even here it works as it should, since the traffic will not always be buzzed in.

My neighbour's suspicion is the fruit of a nineties, where you constantly had to be on their guard against the various forms of scams. This lack of confidence is widespread in Russia. The inhabitants of the house that exploded in Magnitogorsk confirms to Novaya Gazeta that the fear of the thieves refused to let gaskontrollörer.

is still not fixed – but it is clear that it is significant.

48 housing, where 110 people are registered as destroyed by an explosion at six o'clock in the morning local time, according to Novaya Gazeta. Right now is missing a large number of people after the fall – in 18 degrees below zero. So far, four dead found but the death toll will most likely rise.

Both the police and the security service, the FSB assumes that there is a gas explosion is behind the accident. This means that the company responsible for the maintenance of the building, TZJK Magnitogorsk, now the hunt required among the employees. Putin himself has gone to the site.

By flying there, the Kremlin wants to signal the presence to the population. But it is only a symbolic gesture. As always when it comes to issues of safety and maintenance in Russia is the problem of corruption.

Russia has implemented a variety of reforms when it comes to maintenance of high-rise buildings. The maintenance has been privatised and split up in different companies, which often have close ties to municipal officials. Prices have risen – the costs of electricity, gas, and maintenance is often almost as high in the provinces as in the capital, despite the fact that wages in rural areas is a fraction of the Moskvalönerna.

The high costs have, in turn, to do with private companies in various imaginative ways saltar bills. Control over them is virtually non-existent. Therefore, it is not surprising that the inhabitants do not trust gaskontrollörer.

In the middle of december, it started smelling garbage in our stairwells in Moscow. The refuse chute was igenproppat with waste. The same day I made this discovery I was forced to go off on a reportageresa.

When I three days later came home to a stench throughout the stairwell as a dumping ground. The garbage in the traffic-jammed tube had reached the third floor.

I rang the bell of the neighbor, who spoke on gårdskarlen gone on vacation. The service company had neglected to send in a substitute. To let be to send in relief workers is a practical way to stop the budgeted money in your own pocket.

We called the service company and the city officials. We screamed that if not refuse chute soon to be cleared as it ends up with someone throwing a cigarrettfimp in the tube and the house burns down. We engaged more neighbors who also began to call. The refuse chute was cleared.

in a corporate culture where leadership is focused on building up various imaginative arrangements to stop the money in your own pocket, safety is never a priority. We can most certainly expect that a number of people in Magnitogorsk will be brought to justice for dödsorsakande by omission.

It is discouraging, however, not the one who has to earn his daughter's studies in London by budgeting for the security updates that you fail to implement.

If something were to happen, it's just to make sure that someone else will get caught.
