That is, according to the authors' intention, every month the Russians should receive money so that they can buy domestic products.

The document, in particular, talks about pregnant and lactating women, about children of all ages, about those who are in social institutions - that is, in hospitals, boarding schools, etc. The Ministry of Industry and Trade insists that food from healthy nutrition as part of the development of domestic food aid.

The project entered the government office in December 2020. However, the authorities have not yet discussed the implementation of the measures specified in the document.

As for the financial situation of citizens, half of the country's residents are unhappy with them, according to a poll by VTsIOM (The All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center). According to another poll, every fourth Russian believes that he lives in poverty. Only 14% of those living in the country believe that the financial situation of their family is stable.
