The Ministry of labour offers to encourage women who gave birth to two children up to 30 years. This was announced by the Minister of labour and social protection of Russia Maxim Topilin, reports TASS.
He said that in Russia there is a problem that increases age of first birth. “We need to come up with some additional measures to stimulate the birth rate, which would stimulate the birth of two children not just as material capital, namely at the age of, say, 30 years. Now, if we have something in this direction will think it over, agree?” — said the head of Department. Topilin added that he does not consider good or bad, the fact that woman gives birth after 30.
“But, of course, from the point of view of the health of the mother and the possibilities of the birth of the third or fourth child when the woman gives birth to two children up to 30 years,” he added.
Now in Russia there is a program of payment of maternity capital. In December 2015, at the initiative of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin was extended until 31 December 2018.
In June 2016, Putin signed a decree increasing the amount of a single payment from means of the parent capital up to 25 thousand rubles.
