The “Presidential” bounty, a quarter of a million roubles (around $9000 ) for the birth of a second child, should start rolling out from the beginning of 2007, but deputies of the State Duma have not approved the law yet.

She has convinced us that there is nothing to worry about and the program would start in time, without changes. Ok, let’s wait until the beginning of 2007 and see.
