MOSCOW, September 4 (Itar-Tass) — All public facilities in Moscow will be adapted for disabled persons by 2016, the head of the social protection department, Vladimir Petrosyan, told a meeting of the city government on Tuesday.
By the end of the year the share of facilities that will be fully or partially adapted for persons with disabilities will reach 74 percent. At present, there are around 50,000 such buildings in the Russian capital.
Moreover, in 2012 the Moscow city government plans to create 2,500 new jobs for disabled persons.
“For eight months of this year 1,800 jobs for disabled persons were created or 73 percent of the city’s plan,” Petrosyan said.
