Deputy Chairman of the Commission for Support of Family, Motherhood and Childhood of the Public Chamber of Russia Sergey Rybalchenko appreciated the new support measures.
“The decision to expand the targeting of groups that will receive social support measures is correct and timely. This applies to payments in the amount of 5 thousand rubles from April to June,”he said in an interview with Sputnik radio.
According to him, initially this was intended only for those who had the right to receive maternity capital, but now the group of recipients has been expanded to include everyone who has children under the age of three.
As Rybalchenko noted, the decision on a lump sum of 10 thousand rubles for each child is also correct.
The expert added that the regional authorities need to do everything possible to help families receive these funds as soon as possible.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian government approved additional payments for families with children aged three to 16 years.
On May 5, progorod43 reported that in the Kirov region they told about the automatic extension of a number of social payments.
