SARATOV, September 5 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the draft budget for 2013 would be a “pre-crisis” one but stressed that it provided large funding for healthcare and education.
“Don’t have any doubts about our unflagging attention to healthcare. Even the budget for 2013, which is essentially a pre-crisis budget where everything has been cut down, provides impressive funding for healthcare.,” Medvedev said at a meeting with United Russia party fellow members in Saratov on Wednesday, September 5.
This funding will keep healthcare modernisation going and provide for the purchase of new equipment.
“Everything that has been planned will be done,” he said.
Medvedev stressed, however, that “doctors should also understand that the Hippocratic Oath is not an empty sound”.
He also said that funding for education would not be reduced.
“We have not had such a consolidated budget for education over the past 20 years. We have money,” he said.
