The profile committee of the Federation Council on economic policy proposed extending the program of preferential car loans to participants in a special military operation, including those who fell under partial mobilization. A copy of the letter sent to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Grigorenko and Finance Minister Anton Siluanov is at the disposal of TASS.
“The Committee proposes to expand the list of persons subject to the program of preferential car loans, including citizens who are participants in a special military operation, as well as those mobilized as part of partial mobilization,” – says the document signed by the chairman of the committee of the Federation Council Andrey Kutepov.
Kutepov noted that a preferential car loan is a measure of social support.
“So, for example, in 2020, about 20 billion rubles were allocated for these purposes. As a result, during that year, about 200 thousand citizens were able to purchase domestic cars at reduced prices. Buying a car contributes to the improvement of the living standards of Russian families, as well as the development of population mobility and domestic tourism”, the senator added.
The committee also proposes that the draft federal budget for 2023 and the planned period of 2024 and 2025 provide for the amount of expenses for financing the preferential car loan program in the amount of at least 20 billion rubles annually.
In July this year, the Ministry of Industry and Trade resumed the program of preferential car loans, it applies to new cars of domestic production.
