State starts paying compensations to Plyakhanau street blast victims

The explosion occurred in a building number 85, Plyakhanau street, on February 23. Two people died.

"The pensioners got compensation payments - Br 900,000 each. Also, they provided compensation for a child. 600, 000 or 700 000 Belarusian roubles,"- says Aleh Filipenya, a resident of the house where the explosion took place on February 23, to Euroradio.

Officially, the Minsk city executive committee promises to inform the scope of compensation payments soon. So far, they are looking for the best options for accommodation for the residents of the 10th entrance. Some families moved into the apartments, located close to their former residence, instead of rather uncomfortable hotel rooms. The city authorities also organized food for them.

The city officials promise to bring people back into their apartments in April. The remedial construction works at the site of the explosion have already begun.
