Rental Housing – Development Opportunities
Obviously, a family living in rental housing should be able to move to a larger apartment in the event of the birth of a child while maintaining the cost of rent per square meter. In this case the total payment will increase, but it will be the same for one square meter in any case

Rental Housing – Development Opportunities
The President has set an ambitious task for the country and for the Far East. Not only we must reduce the outflow of the population, but we need to ensure its growth. And seeing the population structure of the Far East, it is obvious that we will have to act in three directions. Direction number one is to reduce the outflow of young people from the region <...> The second direction <...> is, of course, the inflow of specialists to new points of investment growth <...> The third direction: if we do not ensure that those who have already chosen the Far East as their permanent residence will have a higher birth rate in the Far East, we will also have difficulty achieving the president's goal

Human Development in the Far East: The Key Asset Is People
If we talk about improving prosperity, the number of investment projects and new points of growth that are now taking shape in the Far East will obviously also shape the possible application of new efforts and the creation of new jobs. Another issue is the issue of social infrastructure, which is present in these points of investment growth, but they do not yet coincide geographically with the points of predominant residence of residents. Therefore, the issue of housing, social infrastructure should be considered at the same time as the development of investment potential

Human Development in the Far East: The Key Asset Is People
I will not list all the support measures for families with children that are in place in the Far East. One of the key ones is the Far Eastern mortgage, which is the key tool for solving housing problems today, at 2%, a percentage not available in other regions of the Russian Federation

Human Development in the Far East: The Key Asset Is People
So far, unfortunately, the population of the Far East is declining, both due to natural attrition and to migration outflows. <...> Residents of the Far East, who are moving from this territory to other regions of the country, point to three main motivations. The first is improved well-being: it is clear that people are looking for higher wages and are looking for the use of their competencies and knowledge. The second factor is ensuring children’s future, and this is a demand for quality infrastructure, for quality education, especially higher education. <...> And the third factor is the improvement of living conditions. On all three fronts, the problems of the Far East seem to me to be absolutely solvable

Human Development in the Far East: The Key Asset Is People
If we are talking about the quality of the labour force, modernization of employment centres is needed. It is important for the employment support infrastructure itself to be more efficient in the Far Eastern regions. To this end, the Ministry of Labour is implementing a project called Employment Centre 2.0. This is essentially moving employment services into a proactive format, introducing a career counselling service

The Cultural Code of Tradition: Strengthening Family Values for a Healthy Society
If we want values to be rooted in a specific world view, in our consciousness, in our country’s cultural code, then we shouldn’t put people in a position where they have to make a choice. What choice am I referring to? Primarily, I mean the choice that virtually every woman has to make in our country – to focus on their family, or themselves. <...> Women in other countries admire and even envy the support offered to mothers and children in Russia. <...> The main competitive advantages include high-quality education, accessibility, and the ability to maintain professional expertise. Family policy is designed entirely to support women having children and bringing them up

The Cultural Code of Tradition: Strengthening Family Values for a Healthy Society
Any challenge is also a time of opportunity. During the pandemic, we had to push ahead faster with processes that had been in the works for several years. The process of digitalizing and modernizing the social sphere was accelerated largely due to the fact that people could not go to collect physical documents. They needed to be offered this service online. People could not gather at social protection centres when seeking help – it all had to be done remotely. These accomplishments will remain with us forever. We will move forward with them. Of course, everything depends on how we respond to these challenges. I believe that here in Russia, we fully capitalized on the opportunities that emerged during that period

Promoting a Socially Oriented Sustainable Future
We still have not completed the task the President gave us to create a wholesome support system for families with kids. It is still to be completed with regard to certain age groups. Families with children alone are getting RUB 1.7 trillion right now

Promoting a Socially Oriented Sustainable Future
Starting in 2020 when the state started to increase its financial support for various social groups, the human-centredness of the social protection system became a number one priority. What was the foundation that allowed us to launch this overall transformation of our social system to make it more person-oriented? First of all, it was massive amounts of data on residents that has been collected by various state organizations in various systems
