One of the officials of the government social block told to the newspaper that the Ministry was regarding the situation as a manifestation of “structural imbalance” which can be mitigated by redirecting people to other jobs. 52 billion roubles within the anti-crisis plan have already been allocated for this purpose, the money will be used to improve the mobility of workers, their further training and the promotion of employment among young people. The interlocutor of RBC knows that targeted subsidies have already been approved for the authorities of the Altai Territory, Tatarstan, Samara and Tver regions, and another 44 regions are expecting consideration of applications.
