CHEREPOVETS, September 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin suggested paying an allowance of up to one million to medics who come to work in rural areas.
“I suggest paying one million roubles in relocation allowance to every young specialist who comes to work in the countryside,” Putin said at an inter-regional conference of the ruling United Russia party in Cherepovets on Monday, September 5.
He believes that the money can be used by young specialists for resettlement, housing or other purposes.
“The only condition is that one should work [in a rural area] for at least five years. That would be fair,” Putin said, adding that the initiative would cost 11 billion roubles.
