About it writes “Kommersant” with reference to the draft report, dedicated to the popularization of insurance. The document was developed by the Ministry of Finance.

The law on insurance of residential property against emergencies shall enter into force on 4 August this year, the newspaper notes. Citizens will offer protection against risks of destruction of property, bays, explosions of household gas and so on. The Finance Ministry believes that the participants in the insurance programs you need to give some preferences — in particular, to give them the tax breaks on property of physical persons, and also privileges on payment of contributions for capital repairs of apartment buildings.

In addition, the Ministry of Finance took the initiative to ban to privatize housing received after the disaster, those who have not previously purchased insurance. This measure, the Agency promoted about two years ago, but then, according to “Kommersant”, it was rejected by the presidential administration.

The financial regulator proposes to indefinitely provide such housing (under the contract of social hiring) only the poor, and the rest — for a period not exceeding three years.

According to the Russian Union of insurers (VSS), the national average insured about 8 percent of the housing. The exception is Moscow, where this figure approaches 50 percent.
