The State Duma proposed to make a lump sum payment for low-income citizens by the New Year. Funds in the amount of ten thousand rubles are also to be distributed to large families, pensioners and disabled people.

According to the press service of the A Just Russia faction, this proposal was made by its leader Sergei Mironov. The parliamentarian noted that the coronavirus pandemic hit the most vulnerable socially vulnerable segments of the population.

In his opinion, many poor people will have to do without the New Year's festive table. Mironov added that this can be done by analogy with the lump sum payment to families with children last summer.

According to the results of the third quarter of this year, the real disposable income of Russians decreased by 4,8% compared to the same period last year. Such data are provided by Rosstat. On average, per capita cash income amounted to 35,043 thousand rubles.
