On lump sum payments to families with children under eight; on subsidies to regions for financing social contracts.
Opening remarks by Mikhail Mishustin:
Good afternoon, colleagues! Important topics were discussed at the President’s press conference yesterday. The head of state gave a number of instructions on which it is necessary to promptly prepare specific decisions and implement them as soon as possible.
First of all, we are talking about supporting families with children. Today I signed two documents that provide funding, procedures and conditions for lump-sum payments to families with children under eight years old. For each child, parents or guardians will receive five thousand rubles. In total, we will allocate over 73.5 billion rubles for such purposes. Payments will be provided for all children of this age, and this is almost 15 million children.
