More than a third of Russians believe that the introduction of maternal capital for the first-born will increase the birth rate in the country. This conclusion was reached by the specialists of the Public Opinion Foundation after a study.

As the RIA News, 34% positively assess the innovation, mostly young people from 18 to 30 years old. About 28% of citizens believe that maternity capital will not affect the birth rate in any way, 25% expect a slight increase, the rest found it difficult to answer.

Some respondents (8%) believe that the certificate will improve the financial situation of people at the birth of their first child, others (7%) that they will give birth to children because of money. Skeptical respondents said that they do not give birth for money (12%), that this is small money, which will not be enough for a long time (8%).

In mid-January, in his message to the Federal Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin voiced the proposal to expand the maternity capital program. It will begin to be issued to first-born families, and those with a second and subsequent child will receive an increased certificate size.
