In 2020, Vladimir region residents complained more often about violations of their rights. Ludmila Romanova, the Commissioner for Human Rights, received 4,425 appeals, which is 9.6% more than in 2019. This is stated in the annual final report of the Vladimir ombudsman. Most of the applicants are the working population, followed by pensioners and people with disabilities.
“Regarding the social status of applicants, it is worth noting that the largest number of appeals came from the able-bodied population – 55.7% of the total number of appeals, which is higher than the previous period by 21.1%. At the same time the number of appeals from persons held in correctional institutions of the Federal Penitentiary Service decreased from 33.1% in the previous period to 13% in 2020”, – according to the report.
The leader in the number of appeals was again Vladimir – 1,570 complaints. Residents of the regional center asked Lyudmila Romanova for help in 2020 40% more often than a year earlier. The indicator in the Sudogodsky district increased fourfold, and the reason is the planned routing of the M-12 “Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod-Kazan” highway.
Three times more applications came from Kovrov district, and two times more from Kovrov. There was also an increase in applications from the Gus-Khrustalny district. The opposite dynamics is demonstrated by the Gorokhovetsky district – there the number of complaints decreased threefold.
