MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has spoken out against the revival of the Soviet tax on bachelors and childless.

"This is a new tax. Very often our political opponents and our party mates say "Let’s introduce a new. But we should always calculate consequences. It was the most unpopular tax in the Soviet period, because people, especially men, could not understand — I have not done anything, so why should I pay the tax?" Medvedev said.

According to him it is necessary not to introduce a new tax but to create a fund to support mothers who don’t receive child support payments they have the right for.

"This idea is being discussed, it is not easy to implement. But it is, at least, more fair, and as for punishing everyone who does not pay child support money - I think that is wrong," Medvedev said.

Tax on childlessness or tax on bachelors was introduced in the Soviet Union in November 1941 by the relevant decree of the Supreme Council of the USSR.
