13:22 13/09/2011

ST. PETERSBURG, September 13 - RAPSI. A St. Petersburg city court is set to hear on October 3 a lawsuit filed by World War II veterans challenging the applicability to veterans of a rule that one must live in St. Petersburg for 10 years prior to applying for subsidized housing, the court reported on its website on Tuesday.

According to city ordinances, St. Petersburg citizens need to meet a 10-year residence requirement in order to apply for subsidized housing.

The court on May 23 heard another lawsuit filed by several war veterans challenging the residence requirement's applicability to veterans.

The issue of municipal housing for war veterans was widely discussed following the widely covered story of a Russian World War II veteran who appealed to the president of the United States for American citizenship after he failed to get municipal housing in St. Petersburg.
