MOSCOW, January 15. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday will take part in a plenary session of the nationwide forum, The State and Civil Society, currently underway in Moscow.
The forum is organised by the Russian Public Chamber and the League of Nations Health Organisation.
“The head of state will address delegates of Russian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) - participants in the most successful social projects, which had received state grants,” the Kremlin press service said.
Socially oriented NGOs include organisations dealing with the environmental protection, wildfire protection, charitable activities, adaptation of migrants, resocialization of drug dependents, preventing fires and conducting rescue works, as well as activities in education, science, culture and other spheres. They can hope for the state support, including for state grants.
The Public Chamber said the key topics of the forum are the support for socially oriented non-commercial organisations and improving the mechanisms for distributing grants.
