MOSCOW, September 10 (Itar-Tass) — The work on the programme for the All-Russia People’s Front (ARPF) will be completed by September 18, the front’s chief of staff Vyacheslav Volodin said.
He said the front’s experts would have to work hard shortly to incorporate Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s proposals put forth at an inter-regional conference of the ruling United Russia party in Cherepovets.
Putin called for providing young teachers with housing, lowering the mortgage rate and reducing the down payment for them.
Volodin also noted the shortage of more than 20,000 medics in rural areas. Putin suggested giving relocation allowances of one million roubles to medics who agree to move to such areas and work there.
Other priorities include the reduction of the waiting list for high-tech surgeries and providing disabled people with less expensive wheelchairs.
The programme should be approved by the United Russia congress on September 23-24.
