Deputies of the State Duma want to introduce a new measure of social support for single pensioners. They offer to pay them New Year’s capital so that older people can buy groceries and prepare for the holiday without compromising their budget. 

According to RT, a letter with the corresponding proposal was sent to the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation. What amount is involved is not yet known. They want to link the funds to the average pension by region. 

The author of the initiative, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Boris Chernyshov, does not exclude that the idea will be considered before the New Year. He said that if they approve the payment, no one will check where pensioners spent them.
