5:13 am
life expectancy in russia would be $78.00 here. the statistics shows that while the results so far. are not satisfactory we've had a dip we know why but that's the point that make we should blame for it but i was to goal remains the same our priority is to increase the life expect. i know full well that this is no small feat it's indeed a tall order yet i believe that even though compounded by the bun demick which is still here still around it's still a threat to all of us and we see that many countries all the world see rising infections but what we need to do today is to keep control of the situation we need to guard our lies protecting our country from the pandemic and we need to be wary of the pandemic inside the country. again they like to say to you do not let your
5:14 am
guard down please take care of you and your families and friends please add to spawn simply follow all the guidelines so. it is of immense importance to carry out the vaccination successfully and i call upon the authorities at all levels to be working hard to me sure that people get a nexus to work see a cross russia so that by our term we'll have that herd immunity in place across the country. we must do that we have to do that. once again but i call upon every one of you every russian citizen police. take that this way we will. this epidemic in the bud there is no other way will you the only way but we still might see is to get had very effective
5:15 am
but the consequences are unknown so you get vaccinated of course there is still that danger but now it's time to think of how we should be recovering and helping people to recover. our hospitals and clinics had to stop giving to patient access to medical health care to some extent. that is why i thought it diseases related to their hair and that leads to the following sometimes it was to be possible to diagnose it is easier on time given the situation now i think it's time to ban the checkups. i think we can. charge this for. starting from july this year it will be available for people of all ages we need to do that on a wild scale so we need to start distributing more
5:16 am
health care units. vehicle based units one of the 1st targets for the coronavirus pandemic when you are in your heart and your. cardiovascular system that is why we need to extend the helping hand 1st of all most of those was cardiovascular diseases and i believe that we need to additional measures to prevent and treat these diseases because they are one of the major causes for people to die before their time but also cancer is a problem because asparagus retracts longs are also a target a lot of people fall victim to hepatitis c. and i believe that by adopting proper it's not just we can reduce to minimum the frats. 10 years we believe that people should go to the resorts and to. facilities which are there to them to recover and improve their health
5:17 am
today we have a program which gives people 20 percent of all the spare and i think that should remain as a tease for the time being. special note. the health of our children. in your yard you build up your immunity for the rest of your life so we need to give. the opportunity to have access to words and i believe that we should be giving half of the money parents spend of their children to go to holiday somewhere back to them. that is why 50 percent of the money spent on children comes should be given back because cash students should be our priority as well and this year we should start a pilot project so that students could leave on their campuses another region of those. who will be traveling across russia during summer should get bother says we
5:18 am
need to encourage the volunteers who precipitated during the olympic games and the many volunteer projects that we have including russia the country of opportunities for. police people i believe we can give them back some of the money of this band on their holidays. that would include the time when they are after their educational duty so to speak during the peak season of travelling. and i like to think of all the parties who supported the decision to. set up a new tax on high incomes on some of the high incomes there was the money we got we being allocated to a special fund the circle of. kind heartedness we give that money to usually with by the medicines necessary for children with rare diseases so that they will have the equipment and the drugs as well as we cover all the surgeries for them
5:19 am
i know that this year will be celebrating the anniversary of our emergency ambulance services there the people who are on the front line fighting for the lives of people. the 28th of april be marking their day and the next 3 years will be allocated 3 to 5 more 1000 vehicles to work as ambulances across russia in remote areas in the villages or far away regions so that the fleet will be modernized upgraded and revamped some of the leading cutters of the world as we know will fall in well because they said it themselves failed to work as effectively as we done. it failed to rise to they came to how are the. global health care today on the brink of a revolution. we should not miss the opportunity demi has highlighted and accelerated the growth of telling madson and the health care new
5:20 am
diagnostic measures you surgeries we have program set new drugs have been popping up across the world and we need to be working hard so that all these new technologies and things will work to the benefit of our people on the new technology called basis we should build our new health care system with the same time taking care of the day to day problems and we know there is a lot of. the best and foremost the frontline. the 1st immediate care should be no. studying our booking a visit should not be a problem we should be able to get a sick leave. we be talking about that a lot we have the money in place and we have earmarked it now it's time to work it's down to deliver on our promises our health care as well as other public sector there are still some problems that remain but financial managerial problems what we
5:21 am
need to do is still allow us to have high quality timely health care and that is why we believe that health care should be part of the a genda at the state council meeting which is to take place. once again we have been experiencing or concern during the. board with direct payments for the family is that half almost 28000000 children and these payments were done without any paperwork without any red tape it was done automatically the way people need it i know that members of the government worked in there and. they did a targeted work not without some mishaps but they did everything to make this work and they did and that's critical that's a good example. this approach. approach
5:22 am
should be a standard to work at all the levels of the government that's the main idea of the nation all social initiative that was discounted during the previous meeting. social console. part and your direct work your job is to make schools clinics and employment centers to make them work so that they work for the people for the families in a lot of region tonight. so with my own eyes and they already were in some areas like please but we need to make it comprehensive along and taras social the range and the next year and in 2022 we must introduce social action. well then king principle it means that the old the payments all the wealth for a soul the social welfare and solace services should be paid work in the shops so without driving around
5:23 am
a lot of agencies and departments so they should creating a family having a child retiring or any other social situations in 3 years the vast majority of the state in municipal its services must be provided to the citizens of russia remotely what's that she'd be 247. means that they should be able to get these services whenever they want to. again that put you at the end i should speak one sensitive topic as. you probably i'm socially payments for is that i'm always that you abandon it's a problem because that should not be humiliating at all the matter is must be resolved. as much as we can and. those who suffered than those single mothers with children shouldn't go to agencies trying to collect
5:24 am
all the national story papers we should try and make departmental services including the banks to make all the decisions regarding the face of payments i would imagine called the state must defend and protect the rights of a child that's what i'm talking about here and i will get back to please stop it clean will be the later. was a means to your colleagues we understand of what kind of blow was by the by that damage to the well for all the people we know it well that were well aware of that but usually figure out that we have the social inequality the poverty and all more obvious it was a challenge but all the countries in the world for all the nations it doesn't happen only in our country it's the same with the average one but it goes for russia as well because we are 1st of all interested in the situation in russia because the prices are growing. of course something urgent decisions were made by
5:25 am
relying only on target to. take any orders so we can't work we remember what it can lead to consider from the from benign to natives from the 1990 s. shelves at the grocery stores and that's why we so in the late 1980 s. but now even when the epidemics bike we didn't allow gays and the task of the government to create a long term. solution long term conditions and i would like to emphasize there's really. market mechanisms and we do have those mechanism and that will. make everything predictable we shouldn't be the ones who set the prices we shouldn't work like this we shouldn't intimidate everyone with frightened everyone with the it's a market mechanisms and we need to apply them and in the volume. that the
5:26 am
situation demands. by degrees increase for the business by encouraging investment. because less work to get there we could be done together and we should provide the real income growth that we should receive dorrit and we should increase it may have been in war and we should change the situation with already as i have said before and the state should provide the direct support for the families with children who are in the dire situation this is a policy and we are going to follow this policy in the future to we already have this leads to a month for the 1st child and for the 2nd child for 3 years and this bayman that are given to the families to worry that income per capita is last then to substance wages and then average these figures are at a level $1300.00 roubles per month per child and 7 to 8 feet in regions
5:27 am
they also have to pay for the 3rd child and average in the country this is also $11300.00 roubles per month per child you assure you and i would like to direct your attention to this we are working on the step by step last year and we introduced that maybe for the children from 3 to salman here is old and the science of the spam and they are 8 and on average it was 5600 rubles up 211300. enterable is all for the good and i urge the government instruct the government by the 1st of july to prepare as the comprehensive seems to me because we should bring down to their rescored it becoming poorer for such families but we need to introduce you solutions right now old radio to date because it's always difficult to raise a child. with a family with only one parent and there could be a lot of reasons for players and we shouldn't discount the reasons why it happened we need to support these children and it's especially difficult when such
5:28 am
a dam only also have financial hardship especially when the children go to school so their expenses for the family budget are also increasing we need to support the families were a mother or any father single parents and they raise a child on their own. and the birth certificate i'm sore at that i'm talking about such things but that's what. every day pacers and we were at birth certificate doesn't mention one of the parents or parents that are divorced and one of them has a child support payment which is right to get child support payments so from the 1st of july kids from 8 to 16 years old that are growing in size families will be paid will be allocated to payment and its size on average across the country will be 5650 ribose for
5:29 am
a month and of course. you can use nation which we need to support the women who are expecting a child and they also have. financial problems at the same time because the future moderates should feel the support from the society from the state to keep it in the child she should be confident that you will be held to raise this child if so when you through it or those who are men who are at the earliest stages of pregnancy and who are and their dire financial situation they should get a monthly payment. and that science will be on average $6350.00 roubles per month. next he. currently. held. sickly if the daemon depends on the workings of the band young women such payments are much
5:30 am
lower at the. base was discussed at the state council and by the united russia party as well all the laws. relevant laws must be adopted in the near future is so old that starting this year sickly have to take care of a child not to send euro zone to be 100 per cent all very salaries. and that you may be you know what i'm talking about most of you present here tending this conference understand the vigor of their work experiences the bigger the payments are those women who have a lot of work experience get 100 percent but they usually don't. deliver children don't bury children anymore and those who do they don't get 100 percent so we need to support those who are expecting a child and i would like to remind you that we.
