Resolution of September 2, 2021 No. 1475
On behalf of the President, the Government continues to work on the renewal of the ambulance fleet and the purchase of school buses. In the near future, the regions will receive almost 6 thousand of these cars. The order on their distribution among the constituent entities was signed by the Chairman of the Government Mikhail Mishustin.
In July, more than 15.3 billion rubles were allocated for these purposes from the reserve fund for 2021. Of these, almost 10 billion rubles are provided for the purchase of school buses. This will allow purchasing 4187 new cars. Most of them will be sent to rural areas so that children can travel comfortably and comfortably to school.
A commentFrom the opening remarks of Mikhail Mishustin at the Government meeting on September 3, 2021
The rest of the funds – more than 5.5 billion rubles – will be used to purchase ambulances. This money will be used to purchase 1,624 cars for rural settlements, including urban-type settlements and small towns of the country.
“The emergence of new transport is especially important for residents of rural areas and remote areas. With its help, it will be convenient for schoolchildren to get to the place of study, and doctors will come to patients faster, ”Mikhail Mishustin said at a government meeting on September 3.
The supply of new buses and ambulances to the regions will be provided by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
A decree was also signed to endow the Ministry of Industry and Trade with the right to pay an advance in the amount of up to 100% when concluding government contracts for the purchase of school buses and ambulances, as well as services for their delivery to consumers. This will make it possible to quickly bring funds to manufacturers, minimize the amount of borrowed funds and speed up the delivery of cars to the regions.
The President of Russia Vladimir Putin instructed the Government to renew the fleet of school buses and ambulances during 2021-2024 following a message to the Federal Assembly. At the same time, at the expense of the federal budget, at least 4 thousand new buses should be purchased annually and at least 5 thousand ambulances for rural settlements in 2021–2023. All equipment must be made in Russia.
