Sakhalinskach Regional Duma in the first reading adopted amendments to the law on social support for veterans. Annual payments will increase for all categories of participants in World War II.

According to the press service of the Duma, deputies are considering the possibility of increasing payments for veterans of World War II, prisoners of fascism, home front workers and residents of besieged Leningrad. For participants in the Great World War II, payments will amount to 75 thousand rubles, and for the rest - 50 thousand rubles.

In addition, the issue of establishing an additional support measure is being considered. Deputies suggest introducing special payments in the event of the death of a veteran. The burial costs will be compensated from the actual expenses of the family, however, they should be no more than 250 thousand rubles. In the event that there are no relatives left, the burial compensation will be paid to the veteran community, guardian or military registration and enlistment office.

According to preliminary estimates, about 27,1 million rubles will be required for new measures of social support in the regional budget, most of which will be a lump sum payment by Victory Day.
