“Since January of this year of the family, whose income does not exceed two living wages on the person, will receive monthly payments on the first and second children. And not until a year and a half, as it was previously, and up to three”, — said Vladimir Putin.

The average amount of such payments would amount to more than 11 thousand roubles for one child.

The President of Russia proposed that from 1 January this year to introduce a monthly allowance to children from three to seven years for families with low incomes. In the initial phase, the amount will be half of the minimum subsistence level, and in 2021 it can be doubled.

“Payments will be granted to the families whose incomes do not exceed one of the minimum subsistence level per person, that is really complex, very difficult situation. In order to obtain such payment, it will be enough to apply and also indicate your legal, official income,” — said Vladimir Putin.

In addition, until 31 December 2026 will extend the maternity capital program.

“We need to support young people, those who are starting family life and I am sure dreams of children. In this regard, I would like to offer additional new solutions on the parent capital, which should also enter into force on 1 January 2020. At birth the firstborn of the family will be entitled to the maternity capital in its current volume. After indexing with Jan the year 2020 is 617 466 rubles”, — said Vladimir Putin.

It is proposed to increase the size of the parent capital will be received by the family at the birth of a second child. It will be 616 617 rubles, and in future will be indexed annually.

Also in the message to the Federal Assembly, the Russian President touched upon issues of education. By 2025 in Russia will be about 19 million students — nearly six million more than in 2010. Vladimir Putin noted that it is necessary to determine the number of additional school places. He also pointed to the need for renovation of premises of children’s schools of arts.

“In the framework of the national project “Culture” stands about eight billion rubles for the equipment and musical instruments for children’s art schools. But the problem is much broader. Now more than a thousand premises where such educational institutions, dilapidated, or just not suitable for training”, — said the President of Russia.

Also from September 1, teachers will pay not less than five thousand rubles for classroom management.

Speaking about the development of the health sector, Vladimir Putin has reminded that last year for the first time in the history of life expectancy in Russia is over 73 years old: “In eight years more than in 2000. It is the result of social, economic changes in the country, the development of mass sports, promotion of healthy way of life. And of course, a significant contribution here belongs to the entire health care system.”

The Russian President also touched on the themes of economic growth, industrial development, agriculture, updates jobs. At the conclusion of the treatment, he made a number of proposals related to the Russian political system, and tabled a series of constitutional amendments. In particular, the question was about fixing in the Constitution the status of the State Council to enhance the role of governors and taking into account the experience of regions in developing solutions at the Federal level, as well as the transfer of the State Duma of the law approval of the nominations of the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministers and Federal Ministers.

Sergei Sobyanin said the message of Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly.

“This is an extremely social message, and the results meet the objectives that were set by the President, will feel almost every family in Russia. Especially families who are in difficult life situations. This increase in the parent capital and the introduction of new payments for children aged three to seven years, and it’s free meals and extra payment for classroom management, and by the way, such innovations as improving the physical facilities of art schools, which is also important — a lot of children engaged in these schools. And many of the buildings these schools are in poor condition. In Moscow, by the way, this project was implemented very successfully,” — said Sergey Sobyanin.

According to him, the uniqueness of this message is that in scale it is comparable with the tasks that were set within the framework of national projects. “The funds that the state intends to direct social policy, the additional cost, in my opinion, amount to about a trillion rubles a year. It is generally enormous costs on the one hand. On the other hand, of course, innovations in the field of the Constitution, are, I think, will be vigorously debated in society. Very rightly, it was decided that these decisions were made not just behind the scenes, or Federal laws, and it was voted by the people,” — said the Mayor.

Sergei Sobyanin drew attention to the political aspect of the President’s speech and added that, despite the extension of Parliament’s mandate, it is important to maintain a strong presidential power, and what was said in the message.
