MOSCOW, July 6 (Itar-Tass) —— A board of trustees, with Russian Vice-Premier for Social Affairs Olga Golodets to be in charge, is set up this Friday for non-commercial and charity organizations. This was announced at the first board meeting on Friday.
"The board will be a bridge to link charity, trustees and the state, Golodets said.
"Non-commercial organizations proposed me to set up such a board," she said, adding that boards of trustees were present practically at all Russian social institutions.
The board will consist of 16 people, representatives of various charity non-commercial organizations. The trustees have an agenda for the next few months, she said.
