Today, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a message to the citizens of the country in which he summarized the results of the fight against the pandemic, noted the successful reduction in the number of cases and recalled the measures taken to this end. The head of state indicated what measures will be taken to restore the economy in the near future, discussed taxes and payments.
In his speech, the president underlined that all the measures taken generally forced the epidemic to decrease, even in spite of the detection of new infections, the number of cases decreases. Yes, in a certain number of constituent entities of the Federation, including Tuva, Karachay-Cherkessia, Yamalo-Nenets and Khanty -Quartiers Mansiysky, the situation remains difficult. But I want to emphasize that we have already developed an operational response mechanism. No one will ever be in trouble. All of Russia will certainly come to the rescue. If necessary, we will put everything in place: the resources of our main medical centers, the armed forces, the emergency department and volunteers. So, as was the case in Dagestan, Trans-Baikal territory and other regions, ”said Vladimir Putin.
He noted that the fight against the epidemic continues, as does the hard work of doctors, nurses and paramedics. Additional cash payments for them will be extended until July and August. Until mid-September, additional payments were made to employees of social institutions – boarding schools, retirement homes.
The President promised that the development of the health system remains one of the priorities. In his appeal, he addressed separately the problems of children with rare diseases, for the treatment of which charitable foundations often raise funds. A systemic solution, namely a state solution is necessary. It is necessary to determine a reliable and permanent source of financing … In this regard, I propose the following: from January 1 of next year, change the tax rate on personal income from 13 to 15 % for those who earn more than five million rubles a year. Let me make it clear right away that not all income will be taxed at a higher rate, but only the portion of that income that exceeds 5 million per year. But even this will give the budget about 60 billion rubles. I suggest that these funds be used to treat children with serious and rare illnesses, ”he said.
Putin commented on the economic slowdown due to time constraints, which inevitably led to increased unemployment. At the same time, he noted that the support measures for citizens, launched in the spring, in terms of volume and scope, were unprecedented. The difficulties have not yet subsided. In this regard, I believe that it is still necessary, in July, to pay an additional 10,000 rubles for each child from birth to 16 years old, ”he said.
