MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. The authorities will support the operation of socially-oriented non-governmental organizations in various ways - not just financially, but also by letting them use state-run infrastructures, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a forum of the All-Russia People’s Front on Tuesday.
"A decision has been made to earmark the corresponding resources - financial resources that had originally been meant for municipal and regional businesses. From now on socially-oriented non-governmental organizations will get access to this source of funding. This sector should be developed at the highest level," Putin said, adding he supported the idea of plugging the socially-oriented NGOs to government-run infrastructures.
Proposals for letting such NGOs access the infrastructures supporting small and medium businesses and receive a number of benefits in leasing offices and paying taxes were formulated in the draft concept of promotion the development of socially oriented non-governmental organizations in Russia. The draft authored by the Civic Chamber was presented in Moscow on November 3.
