Regions where governors have established communication with military commissariats and where many people and social movements willing to help have come together in one team have noticeably fewer problems and appeals related to SVO issues, noted the head of parliamentary work. . group on SVO issues, Secretary of the General Council of United Russia” Andrey Turchak at a meeting with the Governor of the Leningrad Region Alexander Drozdenko and the public movement “Team 47”. It brings together #EstamosTogether activists, volunteer organizations, youth and veterans, United Russia, women’s councils to help the front, members of the NWO and their families.
“Many of these people have traveled “on the treadmill” more than once, delivering aid to the front and to the civilian population. They know for sure, because they saw with their own eyes, the real picture: what are the problems in providing for both fighters and their families. How can we strengthen ourselves in the rear in order to provide our military personnel with not only material support, but also moral support, ”Andrei Turchak said.
The meeting was dedicated to the experience of the movement, support practices for the military, which can be extended to the whole country, as well as problematic issues.
“Many (problems – approx.) are already being dealt with by our working group. And much of what was said in today’s meeting will be included in our first report to the President. An important point that was discussed today is the channel for collecting information on the principle of “one window”. And this applies to almost everything: collection of requests for incorrect calculation of payments; search for mobilized relatives when they do not communicate due to duty; provide legal assistance, etc. And that “one-stop shop” is necessary not only for those who need help, but also for those who are willing to provide it”, emphasized the head of the working group.
He noted that many people are ready to help, but don’t know what kind of help they need or where to turn.
“A simple example. Silver volunteers knit socks. Tied up a lot. They say, “What else can we do to help?” These people are ready to help in the kitchen or with cleaning in hospitals, care for the wounded, care for the children of the mobilized. And such a “one-stop shop” would help to formulate a specific request for the necessary assistance”, concluded Andrei Turchak.
ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
In turn, Alexander Drozdenko said that the region constantly helps the front, and also established measures of social support for the participants of the NWO.
“We have additional payments to the injured. If this injury is not complicated, bruise or injury – 500 thousand rubles, the second or third group – 750 thousand rubles. We pay an extra million if it’s the first group. In addition, we assume the guarantees of training for the employment of people with disabilities,” said the governor.
Today, volunteer work in the region goes in two directions: continue helping those in the NWO area, as well as supporting their families.
“We have good contact with the military units, we know exactly where our boys are. They sent them what they needed before the New Year. The first cars of this year are on vacation. Four trucks, mostly sleeping bags and boots. Plus, of course, social support for families, about food, benefits on utility bills. Before the New Year, a campaign was held so that not a single family of volunteers or mobilized people was left without care,” said Alexander Drozdenko.
In conclusion, Andrei Turchak stressed that the main task of the working group he heads is to report to the country’s leadership on how this or that problem is being solved.
“A special military operation has uncovered problem areas that were previously simply ignored. Therefore, with your help, I hope that we will identify not only what is happening as a statement of the problem, but also how it is being solved, ”concluded Andriy Turchak.
Recall that on December 29, the Secretary of the General Council of United Russia Andrey Turchak held the first meeting of the parliamentary coordination group on NVO issues, created by order of the President.

The working group, which includes representatives of both houses of the federal parliament and all parliamentary parties, the Ministry of Defense, leaders of public organizations, prominent war correspondents, will constantly monitor the provision of mobilized citizens and a number of other issues related to the SVO.
Likewise, the tasks of the group include participation in information and explanation work on issues related to mobilization, training and mobilization, analysis of the state of work on patriotic education of youth and the elaboration of proposals on the production of products necessary to meet the needs of all types of troops and military formations.
