About 76,000 pensioners in the Moscow region have completed computer literacy courses. The classes were free of charge and were held as part of the Active Longevity project.
The courses allowed older people to be more confident in using computers and be able to communicate with relatives and friends via the Internet, search for information, make purchases, and receive public services online.
The Ministry of Social Development of the region added that computer literacy courses help pensioners to remain active and socially involved. They can join online communities, participate in social life and make new friends.
Earlier, Governor Andrei Vorobyov said that the population of the Moscow region had grown. There are now 10 million people registered in the region.
