MOSCOW, October 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A barrier-free environment for disabled people is being formed too slowly, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with disabled people on Thursday.
This is a matter of all civilizations, but this problem is too stagnant for us, the president acknowledged, noting that the problem has been debated already for a long time.
“The situation is changing slowly… And not everywhere. This depends greatly on the position of regional and, frequently, federal authorities,” Medvedev said.
The president offered at the meeting to discuss such issues as the accessibility standards, including some amendments to the legislation. He recalled that under the federal law on social security of disabled people free parking places should be provided for the cars of the disabled.
Meanwhile, he offered to discuss the problem of medical aid, the medicine supplies and the provision with transport and rehabilitation technical devices. “We should discuss the quality of equipment and services in this sphere,” Medvedev underlined.
