The bill suggested to close or convert hotels and hostels in high-rise buildings in only ten days. Why the Duma supported the document, and the Federation Council did not begin to do it? Photo: Alexander to Hostels want to give to Zelikov/TASS time until the end of the year. The Federation Council blocked the Duma bill of actually immediate ban on placement of mini-hotels in inhabited multi-storey buildings. As the speaker of the upper house of parliament Valentina Matviyenko said, the senate in principle supports the initiative of deputies, however demands to reconsider terms of a transition period. According to the bill of hotel and hostels in high-rise buildings had to either close, or convert in only ten days. The Federation Council asks to prolong this period prior to the beginning of 2020. In itself "Galina Hovanskaya's bill" not about policy is money in pure form. Therefore such manifestation of parliamentarism, unusual for Russia of the last years — when the lower house votes for, and top against — should not surprise anybody. Important political decisions are made by the Duma and the Federation Council in a uniform rush. In a case with hostels, according to political scientists, perhaps, there is an opposition of lobbyists.

The vice president of Federation of restaurateurs and hoteliers Vadim Prasov has other figure. He allocated for small hotels and hostels 30% of the market of St. Petersburg that too there is a lot of. At the same time, according to Committee on development of tourism of St. Petersburg, 90% of small means of placement are located in housing stock. Ahead of several matches of "Euro-2020" and a world hockey championship in 2023, but that even more important and earlier — elections of the governor.
