In the Magadan Region, deputies of the Regional Duma adopted a law to increase social benefits to reindeer breeders by 33%. Indexation has not been carried out since 2016.

As the TASS, now the allowance will be about eight thousand rubles a month. Thanks to the increase in payments, the authorities plan to increase interest in the traditional economy of the indigenous small-numbered peoples of the north in the region.

Along with the reindeer herders, workers at the transhipment bases who work in the indigenous communities, as well as schoolchildren between the ages of 14 and 18 who work on the farms during the summer holidays, also receive benefits.
