Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government from July 1 to double to a level of more than 31 thousand rubles to increase the allowance for caring for a child up to one and a half years for female servicemen.
“Women-military personnel are not included in the insurance system, so the payment was fixed there, they are paid a little more than 15 thousand rubles – the amount of the allowance for caring for a child up to one and a half years. From July 1, this injustice should be eliminated, this amount should be increased more than 2 times, to a level of just over 31,000 rubles,” Putin said Wednesday at a meeting of the Presidium of the State Council.
He instructed the government “to implement this proposal and keep this issue under special control.”
In addition, the president instructed the government to increase payments to Russian military personnel who operate in Ukraine.
According to Putin, “it is necessary to quickly and fully resolve the issues of social support for military personnel in general, especially those who were injured, and even more so for the families of our comrades who died.”
He stressed that all payments must be timely, it is a matter of monetary allowance and bonuses. “We have already agreed with the Prime Minister that we are doing some recalculation. They (military personnel), like people who are abroad, receive appropriate payments, they (payments) need to be increased, because everything is equated to the exchange rate,” he said. head of state.
In this case, we are talking about the dollar, he recalled. “And the dollar, as you know, is shrinking, the ruble is strengthening, so you need to recalculate all this and make these payments accordingly. This applies to all social issues, this concerns housing and so on, that is, I ask you to keep all this under your control. Ministry of Defense does it, does it with dignity, but where it is necessary to lend a shoulder, of course, it goes without saying, you need to do it,” the head of state said.
In the regions, he noted, this work is being actively carried out. “And I want to express the hope that regardless of the measures taken by the state, and at the regional level, you will surround the families of our children with attention and care, and will do everything to support them,” Putin said.
