Not formal but human approach is necessary in solution of problems of those families, which because of some reasons are found in a difficult situation, the Prime-Minister of Government RB Rail Sarbaev stated at today’s meeting of Government RB.
“Nobody sets unreal tasks before the managers but if there a chance to solve somebody’s problem we have to do it in the first turn” – Rail Sarbaev underscored.
In spite of the difficult economic situation Bashkortostan goes on pursuing step-by-step social policy, allocating more than 60% of budget means to support of social sphere, including backing of families, motherhood and childhood.

As the deputy Prime-Minister of Government RB, Minister of labor and population social protection Fidus Yamaltdinov reported, 6209 families with the children, found in difficult situation, are registered in Bashkortostan at present time. “Along with the allowances, established by the federal legislation, Bashkortostan pays monthly allowances for children-invalids. Besides, monthly allowances are paid to the families with many children. For nine months 2009 the overall sum of the abovementioned payments exceeded 163 million rubles. About 280 thousand families with scanty means receive monthly children allowances and the sum of these allowances for nine months 2009 made more than 547 million rubles” – Fidus Yamaltdinov reported.
