Russia is introducing a new social support measure.

Payments of 100,000 rubles ($1.099) are provided for children who have suffered as a result of Ukrainian attacks.

The decree was published by the Russian government on February 9th according to Ura News.

The Russian government is introducing new one-time payments for children who have been affected by shelling from the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The corresponding order was prepared following President Vladimir Putin's December decree, which determined the amount of such assistance — 100,000 rubles, as reported by RIA Novosti.

The payments are intended for families from the DPR, LPR, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions, and other areas of the special military operation, where children have sustained injuries (wounds, traumas, concussions), according to the decree.

The payment is to be deposited into the accounts of the parents (legal guardians) or directly to the victims if they have reached the age of majority.

A total of 40.8 million rubles ($448.000) has been allocated for this purpose, with the Ministry of Labor of Russia overseeing the targeted expenditure of the funds.
