Additional funds will be allocated to extend the cashback program until the end of the year, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko said at a meeting with Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin on April 26.
He recalled that since last year, almost a million citizens took advantage of the action, returning about 4 billion rubles. The President of the Russian Federation previously instructed to extend the cashback until the end of the year.
“Additional funding for the program in the amount of 4.7 billion has been agreed with the Ministry of Finance, the draft order will be submitted for consideration at the next meeting of the government,” Chernyshenko said.
The Deputy Prime Minister also spoke about vouchers to children’s camps: 5 billion rubles are allocated from the budget for this program. “Upon the return of 50% of the cost of a children’s summer camp voucher, we use the existing mechanism of the program to stimulate affordable domestic tourist trips. We will reimburse part of the costs to citizens, ”he noted, adding that the placement of the shares will be possible from the second half of May. According to preliminary calculations, the parents of 357 thousand children will take advantage of the compensation.
In addition, the government will allocate about 2 billion rubles for recreation of 230 thousand initiative schoolchildren and students. “They will be selected according to the competitive procedures of various competitions. This is “Russia – a country of opportunities” for schoolchildren, “Big change” for young people and students, this is the competition “Your move”. It will be possible to choose weekend trips, weekly tours through a special portal “Mirputeshestviy.rf” “, – said Chernyshenko.
Earlier it became known that the funds allocated to finance the third stage of the program were spent less than a month after the start of the campaign. The government is considering the possibility of changing the mechanism for crediting refunds, in particular, direct compensation of the funds paid to the MIR system.
