TIRASPOL, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian humanitarian aid will be sent to orphanages and elderly people’s homes in Transnistrean by an ordinance of Transnistrean President Yevgeny Shevchuk signed on Tuesday.
More than 5.6 million Transnistrean rubles (about 15 million Russian roubles) will be transferred in the first quarter of 2012, the presidential office said.
The Russian humanitarian project in Transnistria started in 2007 after an appeal of the Renewal Party to the State Duma. In all, the unrecognized republic received over 2 billion roubles from Russia. Most of the funds were spent on preferential loans to farmers and small businesses. The financing of many projects was suspended in 2012 due to the Russian parliamentary and presidential elections and the formation of new executive authorities in Transnistria .
Russian Presidential Administration head Sergei Ivanov said recently that support to social and humanitarian projects in Transnistria would continue.
