New moms and dads of the Moscow region may have such an opportunity from September 1.
This was announced by the governor of the Moscow region, Andrei Vorobyov, during a meeting of the regional government, according to the website of the government of the Moscow region.
The corresponding bill in the Moscow Regional Duma will be considered on July 4. If the initiative is approved, then the parents will be able to choose a gift from the state on the occasion of the birth of the baby.
We have introduced an alternative - not only the gift that we promised is ready for us, but also those who need can choose the money. The payment will be 20 thousand rubles, - said the governor.
In addition to this issue, the Moscow Regional Duma will soon consider a bill on the provision of gift sets to schoolchildren from families where the average per capita income is below the subsistence level.
At the end of March, Vorobyov announced that in the Moscow region from September 1, newly-made mothers will receive gift sets “I was born in the Moscow region” (the set includes more than 50 items necessary for a baby and a mother).
