Citizens from all over the republic apply for help and support to the Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council, Galina Antyufeeva. This time there were 17 people at the reception of the vice-speaker. The range of voiced problems is extensive: assistance to pensioners and invalids, protection of land users' rights, assistance in obtaining Russian citizenship, complaints about illegal actions, from the point of view of the applicants, on the part of law enforcement agencies. There are stories of people reflecting our reality behind every appeal.
Retired from Bendery Raisa Darius works in an institution under the Ministry of Social Protection and Labor for more than 40 years, defends the rights of disabled people. She told the vice-speaker what problems her wards face today. "I see how they live, who needs support," Raisa Darius explains. Invalids of the 3rd group do not enjoy benefits when paying for living, despite the fact that many of them are limited in their physical abilities since childhood. The social worker asks to consider this issue at the legislative level. The Vice-Speaker of the Parliament informed: the bill on this issue was adopted by the Supreme Council in the first reading. Galina Antyufeeva thanked the pensioner for conscientious attitude to work, noting that feedback from voters is extremely important in the development of legislative initiatives.
One of the most frequently asked questions to parliamentarians concerns obtaining Russian citizenship by Pridnestrovians. A resident of the capital Larisa Medvedeva appealed to the deputy for assistance in his decision. Some time ago, she submitted documents to the point of exit consular service in Tiraspol, but was denied the granting of Russian citizenship. Galina Antyufeeva advised the resident of Tiraspol to apply for individual consultations with the embassy specialists, also drawing attention to the fact that, for their part, the deputies of the Supreme Council continue to actively discuss the topic of citizenship at meetings with deputies of the State Duma. This gives positive results - the procedure for obtaining Russian citizenship for compatriots living abroad has been simplified.
The vice-speaker receives appeals related to the violation of the rights of citizens by law enforcement agencies. Most of the complaints relate to the work of investigators. The parliamentarian emphasized that if law enforcement officers exceed the powers assigned to them, it is necessary to apply to the prosecutor's office.
