MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. President Vladimir Putin’s "May decrees" is a priority for the government, financial resources are available for their implementation, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said in an interview with RBC TV channel at the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi.
"The budget has enough money for this year and the next, when all the "May decrees" figures will be reached. This is a priority for us. Even if we are faced with the most difficult restrictions on revenues, we would fulfill this unconditionally," the Minister said.
A total of 11 so-called "May decrees" were signed by President Putin on May 7, 2012, when he was sworn in for the third presidential term. The decrees seek to raise living standards in Russia, particularly in the social, healthcare and education areas. Most of them are scheduled for implementation before 2018.
