Vadim Krasnoselky on a visit to Kamenka District

The president assessed the state of Katerinovka's House of Culture

Kamenka District, 22 May. /Novosti Pridnestrovya/. The head of state is continuing his voyage over the country's cities and villages. Today the president is visiting Kamenka District. The first settlement that Vadim Krasnoselsky has visited today was Katerinovka village, the president's press service reports

About one and a half thousand people live in the village; half of them are able-bodied citizens. The local leadership seeks to create conditions to keep the villagers at home.

Particular attention during the visit was given to the socially significant object - the village's House of Culture. The premises that can hold 385 people host numerous events, accommodate various clubs and amateur groups. 

However, the building, which was built in 1960, is not heated. The last major repairs were carried out in the early 1990's. Back then we had barely scraped up funds to replace the windows and doors, Tatyana Lomaka, director of the House of Culture, told the president.

According to her, the house has become the second home for adults and children who come here in any weather. "It is 25 degrees below zero in the winter, and we come here and sing; the kids are engaged in their activities. We give them tea to warm up," she said.

Vadim Krasnoselsky assured the director that he was familiar with the situation and would apply for the mandatory inclusion of the House of Culture in the program of capital investments for next year. This program is expected to cover one and a half hundred objects in 2019, with an emphasis on culture and sports.

According to preliminary calculations, major repairs of the house will require about 1.5 million rubles, the head of Kamenka District, Vladimir Bychkov, told the president. He stressed that the importance of preserving this social facility was due to the fact that the village was developing: about a dozen peasant farms have been established; there is a steady birth rate of 14-15 babies a year. Updating the infrastructure will create prerequisites for preventing the local population from leaving their native village, the president believes.
