MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets has called for extending maternity capital for 10 years as a minimum.
Maternity capital is a federal subsidy for any woman who gives birth to or adopts a second, third, fourth, etc. child. The government planned to end this programme in 2016.
“We have reached the highest birth rate only last year. This means that until babies born in 2012 grow, we have to maintain such special measures for creating favourable conditions,” Golodets said, adding that debates with the government’s economic bloc would be continued, “but we will insist on this, because this is a precise and well calculated figure.”
