Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, August 11, said that it is necessary that all schoolchildren can receive free hot meals, and the government and the regions must submit proposals.

The head of state drew attention to the fact that in small schools, which are most often located in rural areas, the construction of canteens and canteens is not expected.

“I now appeal to all the heads of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and ask the presidential administration to take control of this and bring it to the end. It is necessary that all schools, so that all students in all schools in Russia enjoy those benefits. In fact, free meals for primary school students are a privilege so that all children in the country have this opportunity. I am waiting for proposals from the regions and the government of the Russian Federation, ”the Russian leader said during the meeting.

On June 22, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on free hot meals for primary school students. In 2020, the subsidy for co-financing regional expenditures from the federal budget will amount to 21.8 billion rubles.

In January, Putin said that all primary school students in Russian schools should be provided with free hot meals. Later, he advocated tougher requirements for the supply of products and liability for violations.

As of July 15, 58 subjects of Russia are ready to provide schoolchildren with hot meals from September 1.
