Apparently bread lines have been replaced with apartment lines in Ukraine. According to Pani Yulia's blog, the government plans to buy more than 10,000 unfinished apartments by the end of 2009 to give to special categories of people waiting in line for housing. 2 billion UAH from the State Mortgage Office will be used to purchase the apartments.
Why these people are waiting for houses, I'm not sure. But lets hope the bureaucracy doesn't muck up a seemingly decent idea.
