Increase discounts on utility bills for families are offered in Russia
The Russian government was proposed to reduce the burden of paying for utility services for families with children. The initiative was taken by the chairman of the National Parents' Committee, a member of the public chamber Irina Volynets.
According to RT, the proposal concerns an increase in the maximum discount on utility bills to 50% for families with many children, and for families with ten or more children, the social activist suggested increasing the discount to 70%. Now these values are 30% and 50%, respectively.
At the same time, for families where parents lost their jobs due to the pandemic, it was proposed not to charge a fee for a communal apartment, regardless of how many children are brought up. It is proposed to extend this measure of support until the very moment the parents are employed.
