Pensioners from Bashkortostan may have a rest in Turkey just for 5000 rubles and about 500 people may take advantage of such opportunity. The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov reported about it during the meeting with the heads of the Republican rural settlements, held in Aurgazinsky region of Bashkortostan.

This rest for elderly people and just for such symbolic payment was organized within the frames of the Republican program for development of social tourism. Thanks to this program more than three thousand pensioners in Bashkortostan may have a rest at the Bashkir sanatoriums also for the similar symbolic money – just about 4,5 thousand rubles.

Talking about the necessity to support the pensioners Rustem Khamitov has mentioned that the federal government makes everything possible in this direction, raising the pensions quite regularly. But it is not enough and on the regional level the leadership of Bashkortostan also helps the unprotected layers of population, including the pensioners.

“We are trying to make the tariffs for pensioners cheaper and work over the program “Accessible Environment”, in order the elderly people might travel between the settlements easier. We also launched the program for social tourism in 2011” — Rustem Khamitov mentioned.

According to the President RB the leadership of the Republic tries to increase this support in order to minimize that injustice, observed in the society, at least partially and this work will be definitely continued.
