Inscription “SOS” Putin, help” worked: residents de-energized hostel in Irkutsk returned light and heat

According to her, the dormitory of the former military camp was cut off electricity for the debts. “First, we from the headquarters of the organization in Chita received the order to detach them from the grid, but now said that there is an order of the Deputy Minister again to give them electricity. So plug them in now,” – said the Agency interlocutor.
According to the newspaper “Baikal Siberia”, the warning about disconnecting electricity for 20 days residents were issued on 3 September. On the morning of 3 October it became known that the tenants of the building, disconnected from heat and light, wrote on the roof “SOS, Putin, help”.
It is reported that in such a situation, residents of a hostel was not for the first time. The fact that the building belongs to the former Irkutsk higher military aviation engineering school, which in 2009 ceased to exist.
