GORKI, November 17 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev said it would be necessary to continue the policy of social support to disabled people that has been carried out over the last several years largely by United Russia.
“We have started changing our attitude towards disabled people, their social status and, I hope, everyday life lately, but this does not mean that we have succeeded everywhere,” Medvedev said at a meeting with people with disabilities on Wednesday, November 16.
He stressed that the federal government has been allocating more funding for support to disabled people lately. “United Russia votes for the budget, while other parties often do not vote. So, no matter how good these parties may be, they do not support these expenditures,” the president said.
According to the president, many projects for people with disabilities “are working in Moscow and other places”.
“We cannot lose the tempo and the achievements we have made over the last several years. We must continue this policy. But keeping the policy running depends on the individual decision of each person, including people with disabilities,” Medvedev said.
