February 27, 2015 22:58


The Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia plans to prepare a model of system of ration cards for privileged categories of citizens by mid-April 2015, as the Deputy Minister Viktor Evtukhov stated on Friday, February 27, according to TASS.

“These are not just cards that are given, and you go to get food. This is not only a system of population support. It will be aimed at the development of domestic, primarily, regional agricultural production” – Evtukhov noted.

According to him, the Ministry has been instructed by the First Deputy Prime Minister of Russian Igor Shuvalov to develop a model of the system of ration cards in the near future and to submit it to the government. Evtukhov noted that the development of the model may take about one and a half months, and the implementation of the program will be the task of the constituent entities of Russia.

The project of the system of ration cards implies that a person entitled to federal subsidies can choose between a card and direct receipt of money. If one chooses a card, one will receive a bonus for the purchase of domestic or agricultural products.

The bonus will be paid from the regional budget. “On the one hand, it will a system of support and promotion of domestic goods, and on the other hand, it will give people the opportunity to buy a fairly wide range of products at discounted prices” - the Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade added. According to TASS, the agency for the first time reported about the possibility of such food aid to beneficiaries in the new edition of the document on trade development until 2020 approved in January 2015.
