TIKHVIN, November 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The chief of the Russian presidential staff, Sergei Naryshkin, has pledged not to close kindergartens belonging to the Defence Ministry that are not ready at present to accept children.
"The problem has existed. More than once I met with senior defence ministry officials. The decision is the following – the Defence Ministry's kindergartens will not be closed, will continue to work and will be taken over to be maintained by municipalities only when they are ready," Naryshkin told reporters on Monday.
The Kremlin official noted that kindergartens were provided for about 700,000 children more in the past 18 months.
And places for about a million more children will be created in 2012, he said, adding: "We will continue to solve the problem [shortage of kindergartens].”
