Prime Minister Vladimir Putin chairs a meeting of the Presidium of the Presidential Council for Priority National Projects and Demographic Policy

“First of all, we must consistently fulfil the government’s obligations to supply housing to particular demographics, such as war veterans, people who took part in the Chernobyl cleanup, army servicemen, etc. I’m also talking about relocating people out of dilapidated housing and other similar programmes…” <...> “I would like to say that the most important thing for us is providing equal access for citizens to free, general education, regardless of the legal status and the ownership of an educational institution. And in this context, we must ensure the quality of these education services.”
