i have to ask why people are so intent on completely ignoring the most important fact in this issue. they are NOT kicking them off something like
ancestral land or something like that. they are relocating squatters. this is NORMAL for any country to do. Canada does it, the Philippines
does it. any country that has "squatter areas" likely do this. thing is squatters have NO LEGAL CLAIM on the land they inhabit. it is land
they are STEALING from someone else. they don't ask permission, they don't rent or buy the land. they just find a place without a building and put
up their home. Russia in this instance is doing almost exactly what the Philippines does. they move them out. (and a lot of the time it requires a
mini WAR to achieve). yes it sounds cruel, but they are also PROVIDING housing that is LEGAL, and in all honesty SAFER. due to actually being built
properly as opposed to thrown together of scrap material they find and steal.
too bad they didn't put in pictures of these squatter areas. i wonder if these Tartar squatter areas are as bad as the ones in the Philippines? that
is tiny homes, often times they barely have room for a small bed for the family to share. they are built haphazardly which means that trying to get
things like a fire truck in is almost impossible, in fact when a home in a squatter area in the Manila area catches fire there are typically hundreds
if not thousands of people suddenly without a home, who have lost everything they own. as the small size, building materials, and the fact they are
packed together like sardines, means when one goes up everything surrounding them does as well. homes are built on top of other homes. no building
codes are followed at all, they are built out of whatever materials they can get there hands on, metal, wood, old barrels, cheap cement blocks,
plastic tarps you name it they use it. if they actually have electricity, it is all "home wired" without pesky, expensive things like circuit
breakers (and lots of times it is people stealing power by tapping into existing electrical lines). most cooking is done on small coal burning units,
tho if they have electricity hotplates may be used. roofs can be made of tin, plastic tarps, wood, palm fronds, again whatever materials are at hand.
they sometimes even have old tires on then to hold down the roof in wind. candles and lanterns as well as open fires may be used for lighting, when
there is no electric power.
this is nothing like moving the Indians around in North America at all. they are not being removed from their land, they are being removed from
someone else's land. and they are even receiving land for FREE just by moving off land they don't even own. sounds like an awesome deal to me. this
is just being used as yet more anti-Russian propaganda to rile people up, and demonize the Russians. when the reality is that this happens all
around the world every day.
