A bill on federal support for families with many children has been submitted to the State Duma – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

Date: July 23, 2024 Time: 02:03:39

It is proposed to stipulate that a family is considered large if it has three or more children under 18 years of age. Or until the age of 23, if we are talking about full-time students of secondary specialized or higher educational institutions, until the educational process is completed.

It is proposed to establish a uniform certificate to confirm the status of a large family.

The deputies also proposed including in the legislation provisions on state support for large families.

The bill proposes many different measures, including:

free provision of medicines according to medical prescription for children, free travel, the right to admit a child on a priority basis to state and municipal preschool educational institutions.

The explanatory note indicates that the measures to support the population included in this category vary significantly. The age of the children, their number, requirements regarding the citizenship of the parents, etc. may vary. As explained by the LDPR, measures of social support for large families are currently regulated by the decree of the President of the Russian Federation of January 23, 2024, as well as regional legislative acts. Therefore, in Russia there is no federal law regulating the protection of large families.

“It is very satisfactory that not long ago, by presidential decree, the term “large family” was introduced, a family with three or more children, but we propose to consolidate this term at the federal level,” explained one of the authors. State Duma deputy Ivan Sukharev: “Of course, now we have to support these heroes, because there is no other name for large families.”

According to its promoters, this law will help solve the problem of the demographic gap that arose in our country in the 90s. According to the parliamentarians, social support for large families is an important investment by the State in the future of the country, and the own large family is the support of the State in its future development.

According to the information provided by the faction, in 2024 the number of large families in Russia will have increased to 2.4 million, and about 7.7 million children will grow up in these families.

The Cabinet of Ministers, in its response to the project, noted that the solution of issues of social support for families with children, including large families, is the responsibility of regional authorities. The approval of such a law will require budgetary funding and its sources are not indicated, the study authors continued. Due to the above, the government does not support the bill.
