In Russia, retroactively, from May 1 of this year, the minimum unemployment benefit will be tripled. Its size will be 4,5 thousand rubles. In this amount, the benefit will be paid for three months - until August 1.

The head of the Ministry of Labor announced new support measures, and Vladimir Putin supported the proposals. In addition to increasing the size of unemployment benefits, in Russia unemployment benefits will be extended for three months to citizens who have lost their right to it after March 1. Such a measure will be valid until October 1 of this year.

The president also agreed to support individual entrepreneurs who had to cease operations after March 1. For them, they will establish unemployment benefits on the upper bar - 12 thousand 130 rubles. They will receive benefits for three months. Also, three thousand rubles per month for each minor child will receive parents who have the status of unemployed and have lost their jobs not only from March 1 this year, but also earlier.

According to Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, a three-month extension of the unemployment benefit payment period and an increase in its minimum amount will cost almost 9,5 billion rubles each. The equalization of unemployment benefits for individual entrepreneurs will require about 17 billion rubles.
