Yekaterinburg to publish names and photos of debtors

The Yekaterinburg administration is currently struggling with utility service debtors.

The press service for city hall said that the city appealed to the Office of Federal Bailiff Service for permission to publish personal information about the debtors in the media, Weburg.net reports.

If the UFSSP agrees, the city can publish the names and photos of debtors without their permission. Additionally, the debtor could suffer seizure of property, could be subject to administrative and criminal liability, and could be forbidden from leaving Russia.

The mayor's office supports giving the general public the names and photos of those delinquent in their payments, Weburg.net reports.

The total debt of Yekaterinburg residents for utility service is approximately $2.2 billion.
