At the same time, “the children have been forming a rather lengthening queue waiting for a place in a nursery school,” he said.

He also said that “the Russian government at its next session is due to tackle allotment of subsidies to Russian regions for the pre-school modernisation.”
“A total of 40 billion roubles will be allocated this year to create new places in the system of pre-primary education, and Crimea and Sevastopol will take part in this project along with other regions,” the minister said adding that “the new regions are challenged with a month-long task of starting the work, including construction of new facilities, etc.
