“When I proposed this solution in the Message, it was about the so-called criterion, that is, the family had to show their income over the past year to get paid,” – said Putin. “But now, when the current income many “dipped”, it is impossible to judge about the income of the family at the last reference,” – he said.

“So for those who are temporarily recognized as the unemployed, offer when calculating payments for children from three to seven years, as well as other benefits to account for revenue received earlier at the place of work”, – said the head of state.

Thus, he said, will significantly expand the circle of recipients of such support, as it will be able to qualify and those who previously did not pass the criterion of need. “I repeat, not on the basis of previous inquiries, and from the present actual situation and problems of specific families,” – said Vladimir Putin.
