Vladimir Putin opened in the Kremlin on Tuesday a meeting of the Council for the implementation of four priority national projects
Russian President Vladimir Putin opened in the Kremlin on Tuesday a meeting of the Council for the implementation of four priority national projects. These programmes of measures in the spheres of healthcare, education, provision of affordable housing and agriculture development that were formulated by Putin in September for a period until 2008 are designed to improve the situation in these spheres. The presidential Council for the priority national projects implementation was created by a decree of the Russian head of state on October 21. Putin reserved the general supervision over the new body and Dmitry Medvedev was appointed its direct head. He was moved specially for this purpose from the post of the presidential administration chief to the post of the first deputy Cabinet head. Other Council members are Vice Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov, a number of presidential aides and ministers, plenipotentiary representatives of the head of state in federal districts of Russia, members of the State Duma lower house of parliament, heads of a number of cities and regions, chairpersons of business associations – a total of 50 officials. Over two weeks of work in the Government House Medvedev held a meeting of the Presidium of the Council and drafted a plan for the projects’ fulfilment. In particular, the time of additional payments to doctors and nurses has been determined. The payments will begin on February 1, 2006. The Tuesday meeting of the Council is to discuss the time of additional payments to teachers for classroom management. The Council will also approve six projects of placing major medical centres in Russian regions. A total of 15 such centres will be established, however, only six of them are planned to be created next year. The affordable housing project will also be in the focus of the Council’s discussion. Medvedev admitted at a meeting with the president three days ago that only normative acts have been so far drafted on this project, and not all of them. “We hope that before the end of the year we will be able to approve everything for launching this project,” Medvedev said. The implementation of all the four programmes is planned to be launched on January 1, 2006. The 2006 federal budget envisages 134.5 billion roubles for the purposes. In particular, 62.6 billion roubles will be spent on healthcare, 30.8 billion – on education, 21.9 billion – on the affordable housing programme and over 19 billion roubles on the development of the national agro-industrial complex.
