YAKUTSK, November 15 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said the authorities will help large families that got land plots after the birth of the third child.
The head of state noted that a land plot by itself is insufficient to ensure comfortable life; it is necessary to build a house on it and connect it to utility lines. "It is not possible to cover these expenses by oneself," the president said.
"One of the ways to provide assistance on the part of government bodies is to bring these citizens together in cooperatives or associations. The authorities can help such associations by subsidizing interest rates or using other mechanisms," Medvedev said.
