Refugees returning to Chechnya supplied with expired products

INGUSHETIA, November 21, Caucasus Times – In the last several days, the displaced persons returning to Chechnya have been receiving products with expired dates at a warehouse in Ordzhonikidzevskaya village allocated by the department on migration of Ingushetia Interior Ministry.

According to the refugees they were supplied with food rations that the department should give them a year ago.

“These here cans of stewed beef and condensed milk are inflated, because the expire date has been over a month ago. We can’t eat that stuff, just have to throw them away,” Kosum Israilov, a local man of Samashky village said in his interview with the Caucasus Times correspondent.

Meanwhile, the Interior Ministry department neither confirmed nor denied the information. “We are not charged to buy the food rations for the refugees. Everything that has been allocated for our department we give to refugees right away. The products are transported from Nalchik, therefore the purveyor is to be blamed,” the Ministry department officials said.
