Moscow has decided to increase social benefits for families with children by 10 percent in 2023. This was stated by the deputy mayor of the capital for social development Anastasia Rakova, according to website mayor.
It is specified that now more than 1.5 million families live in the capital, in which about 2.2 million children are brought up. At the same time, since 2010, the number of large families has tripled to 200,000, with almost 500,000 children being raised in them. “Next year, city social payments to families with children will increase by 10%,” said Rakova.
